The ECLC Team
We are thrilled to invite our ECLC member districts to “An Afternoon with Debby Irving – Author of Waking Up White,” on Monday, May 2nd from 12:00-4:30pm. This dynamic, half-day professional development (PD) workshop will feature Debby Irving, local author and racial justice educator, leading an afternoon of virtual learning and reflection, in follow up to her popular keynote workshop at the annual ECLC Summer Institute last August. If you missed Debby’s workshop last year, are new to ECLC, or you participated in her talk previously and would like to know what’s next in this series, we encourage you to not miss this unique PD opportunity in May!
An Afternoon with Debby Irving will include two components: Part 1, “I’m a Good Person! Isn’t That Enough?” and Part 2, “Leveling the Playing Field: Interrupting Patterns of Power and Privilege.” Participants will receive a gentle break in between Parts 1 and 2, as well as plenty of time for reflection and interaction during the entire afternoon. We hope you will join us for this thought-provoking, racial equity-focused workshop that was designed with our learning community and the Essex County region in mind.
Please register for the event here, and feel free to share this information widely with colleagues in your district. Please see the flyer below for more details and easy-sharing. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out and we look forward to welcoming you! We ask that you kindly register by end-of-day on Tuesday, April 26th so that we can include you in our final participant roster. Sending much gratitude for your time and investment in ECLC!
