Juneteenth: Taking Time to Unravel Unconscious Biases

June 17, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join this webinar to learn the history of Juneteenth, a celebration that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States and its relevance to ESPs on the job and in our communities today. We will explore the impact of the racial and social justice reckoning and awakening seen across the country over the last year and its impact on the Washington Education Association (WEA). Participants will learn about the steps WEA is taking to unravel unconscious biases, develop awareness of micro-aggressions and eliminate discriminatory behaviors through a long term investment in professional development for all members.
