ASCA Virtual Town Hall: Racism in Schools
School counselors are exploring how they can refine their school counseling program to help create a school culture free from racism and bias. Many school counselors have been victims of discrimination and are managing the trauma associated with violence, while others are examining their privilege and responsibility to be anti-racists. Let’s talk about it – all of it. Join us on Friday, June 12 at 3 p.m. EDT for a ASCA Virtual Town Hall: Racism in Schools. 

Submit your questions for the panelists in advance here. (Note: Submitting your question doesn't register you for the event. Be sure to also register below or plan on watching it via Facebook Live.)
