    Welcome Social for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Heritage Families

    Please join us for a special event for Families of Color, co-hosted by Redwood Day and the PGA Diversity in Action (DIA) Committee. We hope that all Families of Color will attend this affinity gathering for students and adults as we kick-off the new school year. Link to RSVP will be included in the Redwood Day Weekly. Affinity Groups provide affirmation, connection, and support to people whose identities may differ from the dominant population and culture. Redwood Day offers opportunities for families to share experiences in supportive spaces based on membership in a specific identity group. You know you are in the right affinity group if you can say, "My family is ________" and speak to that group's collective identity and experience from the "I" or "we" perspective. Redwood Day offers affinity groups for the Global Majority, historically oppressed and underrepresented families and those who support them.

    SEED Seminar

    SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) Redwood Day is one of a growing number of schools across the globe participating in the 35 year old SEED Project, founded by Peggy McIntosh, at the Wellesley Centers for Women. SEED participants seek to examine our own lives/backgrounds and to learn about others in order to create a community where all members are supported and valued. Participants engage in activities, readings, and films that focus on diversity and connection. Learning more about ourselves and listening to each other helps create and support a more balanced, equitable, inclusive and understanding community. SEED is open to all Redwood Day faculty/staff and is co-facilitated by ash Black and Jodi Freedman.
