George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and Charleena Lyles. Four Black lives that were lost at the hands of police or by killers shielded by law enforcement. These and many other deaths are continuing confirmation of systemic racism in our country.
The Eckstein PTSA is committed to seizing this moment to address structural inequities that exist for our students and within our community. We like to think that we are “all in this together,” but we are not together in experiencing the inequities of racism. We are not together in experiencing the inequities of the global pandemic, the Stay at Home Order, or the temporary closing of our schools. Black, Indigenous and People of Color in our country have been made to carry the weight of the inequity.
The Eckstein PTSA supports the recent statement made by the Washington State PTSA (link also below), which acknowledges the wrongful deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Charleena Lyles and so many others. We commit to taking concrete action not only address systemic racism in our school and community, but to creating an environment that teaches and fosters anti-racism.
Please stay safe, wash your hands and wear a mask

“Home is often the best place to initiate uncomfortable, but critical conversations about our respective identities and implicit biases. These can lead to discussions about how we can improve or remove the gaps in opportunities, achievement, and experiences that are the realities faced by many students and families every day. “
