The Institute for Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) at St. John’s University invites you to its last Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education (CR-SE) discussion of the K–12 academic year. This virtual panel discussion, “Dismantling White Supremacy in K–12 Schools,” is scheduled for June 8 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
This event, like the other CRES Institute CR-SE events held during this school year, has been a collaboration between the CRES Institute and Lotus Lorraine Educational Consulting, founded by Lonice Eversley, Ph.D., a Master Teacher at the New York City Department of Education. This work supports the institute’s mission of collaborating with organizations and community leaders outside St. John’s to develop redresses to systemic racism.
The goal of this event is to provide the opportunity for attendees to enter into the critically important conversation about dismantling white supremacy in education. The panel features leaders in this work: Meisha Porter, Ed.D., longtime CR-SE educator, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Bronx Community Foundation, and former Chancellor, New York City Department of Education; Angélica Infante-Green, current Commissioner of Rhode Island Schools; and Renee Peart, Ed.D., Superintendent of Bronx schools, Districts 7, 9, and 12, New York City Department of Education. The event provides an opportunity to gain important insights that can inspire and motivate educators as they work to implement the CR-SE curriculum.
