Resources for Current Events
We live in a global community. Our friends, neighbors, colleagues and allies beautifully represent different parts of the world. As we come together as school communities, it is critical that we take time to recognize the impact global crises may have on our school communities. Here, please find resources to support members of your school communities who may be impacted by crises occurring around the globe. These Current Event resources have been curated by Human Relations, Diversity & Equity as a supplemental resource. Human Relations strives to include all voices in the belief that sharing our stories promotes understanding and respect. Please direct any recommendations for content to firstname.lastname@example.org
