Student Toolkit - #RacismENDSWithUs

At HCACP we believe that schools should be places for the practice of fairness, for the building of understanding, and for the active engagement of all in creating pathways to freedom and justice for all people.

It is our hope that the various articles, websites, readings and podcasts will create opportunities to explore and grapple with the past and present status of racism, so everyone in our community is treated as equal to, and not secondary to, the lives of others. Let us start the conversation because #RacismENDSwithUs.

HCACP in Conversation

Using #RacsimENDSWithUs, we encourage you to express yourself in a format of your choice; photo with caption, poem, art, letter, voice recording review of article or book or any other format. This project is on-going and each week we will be sharing our thoughts in the weekly assembly.
