The memory I can't shake, the why behind Ally Elementary
Now that the marches are over and the protest signs have made their way into recycling bins there is still a piece of that 9 minute 29 second murder that I think of almost daily. It is the moment when George Floyd called out for his momma. He was staring death in the face and the comfort that he needed was from his sweet momma. Even though he was calling out for his mom, I couldn’t help but feel like he was talking to moms everywhere. Calling on us to work together to create change. When I sat down to really reflect on how we as moms, parents, and guardians, could answer that call, Ally Elementary was born.
We have the power to dismantle one of the most insidious systems that we all operate within: racism. It’s clear that we cannot depend on the world around us to teach our children these values. It is our responsibility to help our kiddos light their anti-racist spark and I truly believe that the most important education begins around our dinner tables, snuggled up on the couch, and in the quiet moments before bed time. Ally Elementary is the only curriculum of its kind that’s created for families who are truly committed to raising the courageous, anti-racist allies our communities need. So what do ya say momma? Are you ready to answer the call together?Join the waitlist!
