Kindred partners with students, caregivers, staff, and leadership (in 17 schools to date) to engage in a series of brave dialogues. Participants reflect on their multifaceted identities, develop trusting relationships, and examine how racism and other forms of injustice perpetuate inequitable outcomes for students. From this work, a representative subset of participants emerges to become equity leaders. They facilitate dialogue with new community members, conduct an equity audit, and develop an equity action plan that ensures a balance of power among community members and engages the school community in co-creating a vision. A sustainability plan is the last step: it includes the shared vision, community agreements, clear roles and responsibilities, and a protocol for monitoring progress on the school’s journey toward equity. The ultimate goal? Everyone has a voice in creating a school community where they are seen, valued, and heard.
