Equity is at the very center of PTA’s mission: ‘to make every child’s potential a reality.’ Wells Branch PTA recognizes that our school and our organization, like most others in the US, are seated within a context of historic and ongoing systemic discrimination, including racism. We are working hard to listen to our school community, and to recognize how our position in this system sustains discriminatory practices. At the same time we are learning how to use our privilege and power to amplify the voices and needs of our most marginalized students and their families. Through this work, we hope to better serve our entire community. We pledge to:
- create safe, accessible spaces for community dialogue
- to stay engaged and listen carefully
- to participate in dismantling racist and discriminatory systems in our school and our organization
- to work diligently toward equal educational and community outcomes for those most impacted by systemic discrimination
