Upcoming Affinity Group Meetings
On Monday, June 1, 2020, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable hosted an informal Arts Education community meeting in response to the racial violence against Black individuals and communities in our country.
The week of June 15 we continued the work by hosting individual affinity group meetings throughout the week. We have continued hosting regular affinity group spaces to support actively dismantling the systems of racial oppression in our field and beyond. Please refer to the schedule below to find an upcoming meeting:

Why Affinity Groups?
“Affinity groups are an effective means through which people can reaffirm and explore aspects of their identity, as well as provide each other guidance and support for interacting with those who might not share, understand, or respect that identity,” (from RacialEquityTools.org).
