Skokie School District 73.5 and SkokieCares are pleased to announce a SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) seminar starting this fall. The mission of the National SEED Project is to drive personal, organizational, and community change toward greater equity and diversity.
SEED seminars are not lectures. Rather, they include interactive activities and conversations often stimulated by films and readings. Through personal reflection and testimony, listening to others' voices, and learning experientially and collectively, SEED equips us to connect our lives to one another and to society at large by acknowledging systems of oppression, power, and privilege—and challenges us to push for change.
District 73.5 will host the SEED seminar on Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. beginning November 16, 2017, and continuing throughout the year. Please see the attached letter for more informaton about the SEED seminar and how you can get involved.
