What is Disparities?
What are your thoughts?
The Advisory Council
I shall not be moved, just like the tree that’s planted by the waters
I pledge to remain steadfast & committed to our sons & daughters
I pledge to share the stories of disproportionality and disparities
So our children and families can live & grow & thrive in
healthy, happy & safe communities
I pledge to eradicate disparities
In all systems, especially education, discipline referrals, penal
& health (such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, HIV)
I pledge to speak out boldly & audaciously as I raise my voice
For in doing this ~ God’s work ~ there is no choice
It takes a village to nurture communities, families & children;
we are the village & these are our communities, families & children;
I pledge to continue this work until it is done.
ASHE! ASHE! ASHE!
