Parent/Community SEED Cohort 2021-22

The National SEED Project is an organization of educators and invites teachers, administrators, staff and parents to explore their relationships to systems of privilege and oppression that exist in our world—race, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, sexual identity, physical ability, age and more—and how these factors impact themselves, their classrooms, their families and community.
A small group of Bernard Zell parents and community members will learn together as a cohort, guided by Deanna McBeath and the National SEED curriculum. Throughout nine monthly sessions, participants will engage in conversations designed to challenge previously held ideologies and uncover new insights into how they can make their lives, schools and communities more gender-fair, culturally equitable and anti-racist. Participants can expect to develop into leaders who guide their peers in conversational communities in order to drive personal, organizational and societal change toward social justice. 
BZ SEED sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. via Zoom. Sessions will take place according to the following schedule:
  • Tuesday, October 5, 2021

  • Tuesday, October 26, 2021
