As a network one of our main goals is holding space to support our well-being. We understand that Anti-Black Racism impacts each of our lives in a variety of ways. It is important to recognize the residue of traumatic incidents that shapes the realities of Black students, staff, and families.
Please reach out to one another and to the DBEN Executive Council as needed. It’s important for us to practice self-care so that we can be good to ourselves and support each other in the work that we need to do.
Recently, And Still We Rise Leadership Ambassadors observed a moment of silence for those whose lives have recently been lost. The recent traumatic incidents remind us once again of the importance of solidarity and working towards our common goal of supporting students. While immersed in the work you do continue to prioritize well-being. Take Care and Be Well.
