• No Place for Hate
    Our very own student, Lee Holoubek, Ida B. Wells Class of 2021, created this artful and powerful digital flyer that was widely distributed to promote our Feb. 3rd event.  

    Ida B. Wells-Barnett High School partnered with the Anti-Defamation League to host a community conversation about race.  The ADL trained a cohort of our high school students, who are deeply committed to racial equity, to facilitate much of our learning and dialogue about how to be an ally and how to have conversations about race with each other.  Our No Place for Hate Peer Facilitators and Scottie Nash, Director of Education ADL Pacific NW had an evening of dialogue with our students, families, educators, and community members.

    "I started this Google Classroom in May of last year as a sophomore for the 2019 August PD at Wilson. Originally the goal was to teach teachers about equity, intersectionality, allyship, and their role in creating an equitable educational environment. Now, due to recent events, I decided to continue this Google Classroom. I have in this classroom, several lessons (one for biology and one for psychology) with a critical race theory lens. There are several sets of slides from GSA on LGBTQ+ history and the beginning of a slide deck from me on the topic. There are also tons of RESOURCES. I have a list specifically for teachers, a podcast list, a list of resources on responding to hate crimes, mental health resource list, a list of different collected resource lists, and more.
     
    Things have been overwhelming recently, and it often feels like the world is dissolving into chaos. But while I believe that the world may be out of my control, I know I can do my very best to ensure that the next generation is educated in critical race theory and equity so that our country's oppressive history is learned and not repeated. I believe in the power of education especially when it comes to dismantling systemic racism and bias towards minorities. I believe that through education and counter-narratives we can truly change the world. I believe that change is coming if we are willing to welcome it with welcome arms." Mia Sedory, Class of 2021
