Each year 6,000 students drop out of Orange County schools. Over five thousand of these children are students of diversity - students of color, of religious or sexual minority groups, living in poverty, or with special needs. 
 
Far too many students of color (or members of religious or sexual minorities) are not engaged in their coursework, are below grade level in academic skills, feel unappreciated, marginalized or even bullied, or simply are no longer enrolled in school. 

Please join us in a series of Diversity and Social Justice Forums addressing the following topics...
  

  • Diversity Self-Assessments for schools and districts

  • Disproportionality in disciplinary practices

  • Impacts of poverty and trauma on learning

  • Bullying and sexual minority youth

  • Race, Culture, & Religion

  • Gender Issues and Health Disparities

Together, let's explore ways to:

  • Improve school climate so all students are empowered and engaged.

  • Eliminate bullying and create safe, supportive environments.

  • Develop intercultural awareness as an important 21st Century skill.
