An important part of the Sheff Movement’s work is educating the broader community about the history and achievements of our regional, voluntary two-way integration system. Many of the families who benefit from these schools and programs do not know that they are part of a regional system that grew out of an earlier generation’s struggle for justice and equity. Our experience is that understanding that history inspires people to become engaged in the effort to maintain a public commitment to quality integrated education and to continue expanding these opportunities to reach more families and students throughout the region.
Our outreach activities include:
- Presentations to PTO/PTA meetings, and other school and community groups
- Delivering presentations and sharing literature at public gatherings and events
- Building and sustaining relationships with educators, school leaders, parents, and students
