PTA Statement on Violence Against Asian Americans

The PTA Council joins other councils and units across the country in solidarity and support of Asian Americans and denounces all racial violence in our country. We will continue to work with our community partners to build a safe and supportive environment for all students, families and staff by improving diversity, equity and inclusion throughout our school communities.  

Here is the National PTA Statement on Violence Against Asian Americans

21 DAY EQUITY CHALLENGE

This is a powerful opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives, our community and our student’s education. For 21 days during Black History Month, Palo Alto students, parents, staff and the community at large are encouraged to do one action each day beginning on February 1.  The #PAEquityChallenge will provide online daily activities (brief readings, videos, etc.) that can be done in 15 minutes or less.  Each daily topic will provide an opportunity to deepen our connections and further our understanding of power, privilege, oppression, and equity AND BELONGING.  Please sign up and encourage others to do so as well!
