"On November 22, 2020 Franklin residents gathered to share their experiences as "people of color".
Since the conversation has taken place, Superintendent Ahern has met with participants to create change. Franklin High School plans on implementing a Race in American society course for the next school year. Students will be able to participate in professional development meetings with staff to further discuss how schools can support students. Also, a District Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee has been established.
Every word in this roundtable discussion has been the catapult to many changes over the span of 2 months. Our voices matter. We deserve to be represented and when we use our voice, we create change.
Thank you to Town Council member, Cobi Frongillo for moderating this conversation. Thank you to James Fredrick, Farley Asmath, Mickey Mitchell, and everyone who participated in this video."
