MS 88 has been very involved with the D15 Diversity Initiative and this Youth Council is a great way to get involved and to have your voice be heard!
The IntegrateNYC D15 Middle School Youth Council is uplifted and motivated to continue our youth councils with you to create conversations and actions together to build our school communities and our city into inclusive, equitable spaces dedicated to racial justice.
Not sure what all of these words – racism, racial justice, inclusive, equitable, integrated – really mean? Want to share, listen, and learn about our different experiences in a meeting designed by youth, led by youth, for youth? Ready to create change?
Join us on Thursday June 18th 4:30 – 6:00pm for another D15 Middle School Virtual Youth Council ! Sign up @ integratenyc.org/d15ms!
At our next council on Thursday June 18th, we will:
- Share, listen, and learn from our own racial identities and experiences
- Review the D15 Diversity Plan and imagine together what schools could be
- Take action by raising our voices to fight racist policies in our school system
Please share this message and the attached RSVP link with your students, classmates, friends, and neighbors. See you on Thursday June 18th!
IntegrateNYC is a youth-led organization that stands for integration and equity in New York City schools. The D15 Middle School Youth Council connects students from different schools in Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Gowanus, Kensington, Park Slope, Sunset Park, Red Hook, and Windsor Terrace to build relationships, share experiences, learn about equity and integration, and to create more inclusive school communities together. In the 2019-2020 school year, the D15 Middle School Youth Council has already hosted 4 in-person meetings at MS 88, MS 839, Boreum Hill School for International Studies, & I.S. Charles Dewey. Our planned meeting at M.S. 51 was canceled due to the shift to remote learning; the June 18th meeting will be our second virtual youth council due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All youth council meetings are planned by students, for students!. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
