What can you do?
Some educators have formed a group called BEAR: Bloomington Educators Against Racism. They are also looking to form sub groups, with a focus on other social justice issues such as equity, LGBTQ, teachers of color, etc... If you are interested in being a part of the BEAR, contact Cassie Pagel or Emily Trieu.
