During this virtual, 5-week event series, we will hear from experts from up and down the I-5 corridor as they share their insights and remind us of our collective responsibility in creating a successful regional community.

For the last year, educators across the board have had to navigate a virtual learning environment, while also teaching the history that we’re living in, a history that’s been ignored for far too long. We've seen firsthand how COVID-19 and racial injustice are inextricably linked. So, what does that mean moving forward? 

During our second session, we'll hear from education and equity experts on how they've adapted to the pandemic, their outlook as we work to transition back to in-person learning, and how to approach conversations around racial equity in the classroom.
