Are you passionate about race and equity in our schools?

Do you want to talk about it?

Help kick off the RIDES 2nd Annual Conference Welcome Reception on April 30 at 5pm and be prepared to go DEEP. Our special guests will be Dr. Darnisa Amante (Co-Founder of D.E.E.P. and Co-Director of the RIDES Institute) and Participant Media's America to Me: Real Talk campaign team.

Dr. Darnisa Amante will use clips from America to Me to ignite conversations around issues of race and integration in our schools. Participant Media's America to Me team will present newly created educator tools, discuss how they can be used in the classroom and for professional development, and tell you about the movement happening in districts, schools, and classrooms around the country. 

Join us for this powerful opening, and we'll provide delicious food, meaningful networking opportunities, and a deep dive into issues of race and equity! All attendees will receive free access to all 10 episodes of America to Me and educator tools on Film Platform through the end of this school year!
