East Bay waldorf retreat

In June 2019, East Bay Waldorf families, teachers, board members and administrators came together as a community at a facilitated retreat to explore issues with, strengths of and hopes for the school with https://jobitel.com the goal of supporting a school community that could maintain a healthy and diverse student population.  

From this initial retreat, https://xjobs.org/ several action teams were find-bride comments formed, one of which was the Diversity, Representation and Consciousness action team.  The name of the team resulted from the themes that arose during the retreat work.  Over the summer of 2019, this group met regularly with the facilitator.

A number of new issues arose in this work over the summer:  
First, many in the group had witnessed and/or experienced racial micro-aggressions the previous academic year.  Feelings were still raw and the group did not have the opportunity to name, address and heal these harms.  Second, this type of work involves a higher level of trust and care as discussing issues of diversity is always challenging.  Third, participants brought different levels of background with this work to the group as well as different understandings of the issues that had arisen the previous school year.  We needed time to educate ourselves. Lastly, this DRC is one of two action https://bstrencontre.fr/ groups that did not previously have an official role in the school; it is neither empowered to make decisions, nor allotted a budget.

Despite these challenges, the DRC action team moved forward with integrity.  Members showed up, stayed present and courageously shared their thoughts and ideas.  We did not always agree, but we were able to sit in dialogue in a productive way.

The group hired an external facilitator to get more support moving forward.  This new facilitator guided the group through a process that allowed the members to produce a mission statement and action plan.  Throughout the fall semester, we continued to shape this mission statement and action plan as we began to understand more about what is possible in this space without funding for the 2019-2020 year (though, $5000 has been committed to the DRC for the 2020-2021 academic year).  The finalized mission statement and action plan has been approved by the steering committee of the DRC.

Racial Justice in Education

The East Bay Racial Justice in Education Collective was started by five families at an East Bay independent school.  The idea behind the collective emerged from the thoughts, ideas, dreams and experiences of a number of families who had witnessed and/or experienced racism at this school and others.  Initially conceived of as a “diversity group” for the school itself, EBRJE grew beyond this vision as a result of a number of obstacles they faced as an institution-based group:

    • The group did not have decision-making ability within the school; ideas that were not supported by the administrations and/or board (such as the recommendation to pursue restorative justice to heal from racist actions taken by the administration and board in the previous year) were not funded nor supported.
    • The school continued to find-bride comments try to shape the group into one that helped support a “heroes and holidays” approach to racial and social justice work.
    • The group continued to be called upon to provide feedback on actions that administration and board want to make and yet the administration and board did not take these suggestions.

Mission statement

To reclaim a sense of agency and to remain committed to our stated mission to support on-going family education, changed philosophy, pedagogy and curricula and collective action, the five families created the East Bay Racial Justice in Education Collective.  The collective supports family-driven racial justice action in independent and public schools.
