What does A.W.A.R.E. stand for? Allied Wilson Advocates for Racial Equity
What is it? A.W.A.R.E. grew out of the Spring 2019 student open letter, the walkout in protest, and the response by Wilson teachers in an effort to address student concerns. Wilson cultural affinity clubs will use this acronym and logo when we gather with intent to foster community, celebrate culture, unite against racism and build a better Wilson for ourselves and for the future.
