The statistics are alarming. Girls of color are six times more likely to be suspended, earn less money in their lifetime and less likely to graduate from college than their white counterparts. Thanks to pioneering researchers like Dr. Monique W. Morris and Kimberlé Crenshaw, we have the ability to understand girls of color more than ever before. But how does this understanding translate into the classroom and school setting?
Stephanie Patton will lead you through a webinar that demonstrates innovative and inspiring practices to build strong girls of color and use creative alternatives to traditional disciplinary responses to girls who have experienced trauma. Centered around the everyday work they do at Columbus City Preparatory School for Girls, one of the few public all-girls middle schools in the country, she will lead you through ways to bring out the brilliance in your girls of color.
Watch some of the the 10-minute extended footage from the PUSHOUT film as a preview for the webinar presentation.
