The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. PTA invites you to join us in...
Honoring our diversity.
Actively breaking down barriers of exclusion.
Building bridges of equity.
Growing and thriving together in Common Unity!
WE NEED YOUR VOICE
At times we may ignore it, but there is no denying that "Race" is a factor - in our society as well as our school.
Courageous Conversation is a community bridge building tool that can equip us to develop shared strategies to engage interracially in a safe, honest and transparent way as we cultivate a more authentically inclusive environment in which our children can learn, grow and truly thrive ... together! We will integrate this tool into our PTA meetings every other month: October, December, February and April.
