But hoping is not enough- we actively need to bring social justice topics and culturally relevant pedagogies into our early language learning profession by educating ourselves, our organization, and our students.
We have a lot of work to do, and we need your help! Yes, we feel great sadness and disappointment today. We need to work harder and we need to work together. We also hold out hope for the future, our children are counting on us to do so. We invite all who believe in giving our children a future that is inclusive, respectful, and safe to join us.
