data2insight Stands with NAME

05 Oct data2insight Stands with NAME

NAME is a non-profit organization that advances and advocates for equity and social justice through multicultural education.  The Founders of NAME envisioned an organization that would bring together individuals and groups with an interest in multicultural education from all levels of education, different academic disciplines and from diverse educational institutions and occupations.

NAME provided their assessment of the President’s September 22 executive order.  In the assessment, NAME states, “it is only when real diversity and inclusion training confronts the painful and awful history of the United States to challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and related forms of oppression that there is even a glimmer of hope that social justice, equity, and real change now and in the future are possible.”  Trump’s order aims to eliminate any “discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress.”

We hope that you stand with data2insight as we work with and urge educational communities to rise up and ignore the ban.  We encourage all the members of our community to vote on November 3 to uphold and advance racial and social justice.
