Many thanks to the 2,500 people nationwide who registered to attend the Students Unite! Justice for Ahmaud event on June 2, 2020. In the minutes, hours, and days that followed we received an outpouring of gratitude, hope, and readiness for action that was sparked by the phenomenal iRunWithMaud Committee, Brooklyn Friends School student organizers – Cyrah, Kayla, Loane, and Bebe – and BFS colleagues.
We are honored that Akeem Baker, Demetris Frazier, Jazz Watts, Coach Vaughn, and John Richards gave so generously to co-create a beautiful, moving, and inspiring tribute to Ahmaud as well as a call to action for young people and school communities across the country. For those who were unable to attend, the recording can be found here. The iRunWithMaud Committee has also shared these important action opportunities with us for this week, which are posted on the I RUN WITH MAUD Facebook Page. If you would like to receive ongoing communications regarding this effort, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, the BFS Office of Service Learning & Civic Engagement has compiled these Resources Regarding Race, Racism, and Racialized Violence for educators, families, and school community members as we continue to seek justice.
