The consultants of QTurn stand in solidarity with protesters demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and the many others who have lost their lives to police violence and apartheid policies. To the organizers, protesters, activists, and educators who have thoughtfully and urgently called for systematic change and accountability; we stand with you.
Racism is learned and internalized, and so too is anti-racism. We are committed to helping educators create spaces where socio-emotional skills are used to disrupt racist ideas and policies and where socio-emotional supports are a foundation for learning anti-racist beliefs and practices. We are committed to helping educators produce objective information and to suspend judgement until students and teachers are understood on their own terms.
WE COMMIT TO ACTION, AS WE ALWAYS HAVE, IN THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM AND LIBERATION OF ALL PEOPLE.
