Martha Brackeen-Harris will lead this discussion. She is the former director of Community Outreach at Renbrook School. A classroom teacher and administrator in both public and independent schools for over 40 years, her work has focused on issues of diversity to make educational communities places where all members feel included in the fight towards equity and justice.
