Share Your Story
REAL is committed to supporting Northampton public schools through the ongoing development and implementation of anti-racist practices, including story collection. We treat all stories submitted to us with respect and care, and we never share a person’s story unless they give us permission to do so. If/when giving this permission, a submitter can specify that their story not have their name attached to it.
Wondering what we mean by story? We mean anything and everything that comes to mind. Your experiences, observations, thoughts, visions… Tellings of resistance, racism, whiteness, solidarity… And stories can come from students, teachers, staff, parents/caregivers, and anyone else with a connection to the district. As far as length, a story might be a single sentence or much longer. If you’d like, check out some examples.
