USNA will host a talk with Mona Ivey-Soto on how to cultivate anti-racism in children and schools on Thursday, July 9 at 6 p.m.
Ivey-Soto is an Associate Professor in the Education Department at Belmont University and teaches extensively on issues of racial inequality within K-12 schools and how teachers can utilize social justice pedagogy as a way to combat systemic racism within the classroom and the broader community. She prides herself on being an academic who is deeply committed to urban schools and community-based programs and she seeks to learn alongside children, families, and those who advocate for justice for children and families every day.
Although some of our hallmark events will not take place this fall, USNA will continue to work to support the school and still needs parent volunteers. Read on for updates on parent socials, Artclectic, and two monthly USNA meetings to be more accessible to working parents.
