No School Tomorrow – Remember Their Names

Posted on Monday / June 1

Dear DPAC Scholars and Families,

This past weekend we saw protesters all over the country come together to stand against police brutality. As you know, Democracy Prep believes deeply in helping our scholars understand and believe that they can affect change in their communities and around the world. I am proud to say that Democracy Prep, as a network, has not and will not shy away from being a part of these conversations.

In an effort to help channel the collective grief and to provide space for deep reflection, and strategic organizing, the Democracy Prep Network is calling for a day off tomorrow June, 2, 2020 devoted to remembering George Floyd and all of the Black and Brown people that have died unjustly at the hands of police or otherwise. Tomorrow we are inviting all families in our network to join us for an ALL Community Discussion at 11am PST/ 1pm CST /2pm EST. We will use “Remembering Their Names” as a moment of reflection and rejuvenation but also as a space to organize for change.

Tomorrow, scholars will not be attending school but we are hopeful that many will join our online forum. They, and you, deserve time and space to process and rest and organize with our entire community. Please note: If there is an immovable one-on-one assessment or IEP meeting for your child, this may still take place tomorrow. Please follow the guidance of your child’s teacher, principal, and special education team regarding meetings that could not be changed on such short notice.

In Partnership,

Adam Johnson, Executive Director

Estimadas familias de DPAC,

El fin de semana pasada veíamos a manifestantes en todo el país que se juntaron contra la brutalidad de la policía. Como ya saben, Democracy Prep cree que debemos apoyar a nuestros estudiantes a entender y creer que pueden cambiar a sus comunidades y el mundo entero. Estoy orgullosa decir que Democracy Prep, como una escuela, no había y no habrá tener miedo de ser parte de este discurso.

Para ayudarnos a dirigir a la pena colectiva y proveer a un espacio para reflexionar, Democracy Prep se cierre mañana, el 2 de junio, para recordar a George Floyd y todos los personas de color que han sidos matados por manera injusta por la policía o los demás. Mañana invitamos a todas las familias en nuestras escuelas de juntarno por una reunión de toda nuestra comunidad a las 11am PST/ 1pm CST /2pm EST. Usaremos al “Recordar a sus nombres” como un momento de reflexión y rejuvenación pero también para organizar para cambiar el mundo.

Mañana, nuestros estudiantes no asistirán a la escuela pero esperamos que la mayoría junten a nuestra reunión en línea. Ellos, y ustedes, merecen tiempo y espacio para procesar, relajar, y organizar con toda nuestra comunidad.

Su compañera,
Adam Johnson, Director Ejecutivo
