Families Organizing for Racial Justice (FORJ) Opportunities

Are you concerned about what the Newton Public Schools are doing to respond to the rising tide of overt racism in our country? Join us for our  next meeting of FORJ – Families Organizing for Racial Justice, a project sponsored by NPS.

The meeting will be on Wednesday, December 20th 7:30-9pm at Mason-Rice Elementary School (149 Pleasant St.). Superintendent Fleishman, Newton METCO Director, Maricel Sheets, and teacher Jen Tomaneng will be sharing and answering questions about the “Courageous Conversations” program being rolled out over a 5-year period in our schools.

Want to connect with your school’s FORJ team?

Email amy@amybehrens.com to let Amy (FORJ Coordinator and Parent Coach) know what school team you’d like to be a part of and/or that you’d like to be on the email list for more information about FORJ events. Our goal is to have an active team of interested parents at each school who meet on their own and participate in the monthly all-school FORJ meetings, which offer opportunities for further education, team planning time and networking. Parents are welcome to join at any time.

We look forward to having you join us!

Amy Behrens and the FORJ planning team
