INSIDE OUT: STORIES OF IDENTITY PROJECT (ACTION #1)
MARS 2012 | 45 PORTRAITS
I am interested in organizing a district-wide Inside Out project to highlight March 21st, theInternational Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, a date declared by the UN in 1966. In my role, I respond to various incidents involving racial, ethno-cultural and religious harassment and discrimination and I work preventatively to address these issues by educating students on the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion. The Inside Out project will provide an opportunity for the students who feel invisible, marginalized, undervalued, and silenced to feel visible, validated and empowered. Through story writing and photographs, the INSIDE OUT: Stories of Identity project will invite elementary and secondary students to share their personal lived experiences, family immigration stories and the unique aspects of their identity of which they are most proud.
