LT Diversity

Lyons Township High School District #204 is excited to host a special virtual community conversation led by Dr. Tyrone Howard. This conversation will be designed to provide parents caregivers with tools, strategies, and resources that can be used in working with students around eliminating hate and hate language. We also encourage students to attend and be a part of this discussion. Many students learn behaviors and language from multiple sources such as social media and peers that are not always conducive for a healthy and inclusive learning environment.  Dr. Howard will share how parents and caregivers can respond to inappropriate comments about race, gender, religion, sexual orientations and other social identities. Ultimately, this community conversation will focus on how we can work together to cultivate a caring community for all. 

Date: April 5th (7-8:30 PM)
