SWIFT Education Center will not be silent about pervasive and systemic racism impacting Black students, families and communities. Today, we deepen our commitment to dismantling inequitable and harmful educational systems and structures. We will actively and intentionally work with our partner schools to end the ingrained patterns of marginalization and disproportionality that harm students of color and their families. Today more than ever we embrace this imperative.
