and independent reflection, we are going to examine that

pulled together to create a process to help individuals
effectively battle their bias. The question is…are you ready to fight?
1. Establish norms and common language for productive discussion around race, class, and inequity.
2. Identify society and personal biases concerning the students and families we serve.
3. Commit to 2 strategies to battle personal biases in the school environment.
