Join us for a forum with researchers, advocates, and students from the nonprofit Ujamaa Place to discuss findings from our latest policy brief, Excluded: How Race Plays a Role in Exclusionary Practices in Special Education in Minnesota.
Racialized perceptions of ability and disability continue to exclude students of color and Indigenous students in Minnesota. Here, researchers present key policy recommendations for reducing implicit bias in education, expanding behavioral interventions and support, and strengthening systemic academic and discipline interventions and support in an effort to address the social impacts of racial disparities in disabilities and special education outcomes in our communities.

Time: 5:30 pm-7:30 pm
