In Salem, Massachusetts, our community and school district are working together to ensure that every child in our city thrives. Under the umbrella of the community-wide movement “Our Salem, Our Kids” the school district has launched a districtwide equity review process. A grassroots effort to identify and disrupt systems that fail so many of our kids, our equity review process is homegrown, imperfect, and authentic. This session will explore why, what, and how we went about developing and rolling out our process. We will try out different tools and share our messy and meaningful work.

Participants will walk through our team's process for uncovering patterns of inequity, try out tools that we have developed and used, and engage in thoughtful problem solving and develop paths for informed action in their own communities.
