Community Forum on Race
As our community continues to deal with heavy emotions over the need for true and lasting change, SAGE will
continue to offer space for our students to share their thoughts, feelings, questions, and ideas. We need the time
to reflect and process the death of Daunte Wright by a police officer, as well as the trial of Derek Chauvin. And unfortunately,
over the past week our nation has faced more senseless deaths. This can leave one feeling hopeless, angry, frustrated,
sad, determined, and so many more emotions. We will continue to support our community and fight for equity for all its
members. If you are in need of anything- someone to talk to, supplies, help finding resources, volunteers- please reach out
Brooklyn Park will be offering a community forum on Race. We encourage you to attend and let your voice be heard and to hear from others in the community. Register
