PS 20 Family,
It is evident that we are in trying times right now. Even as we wrestle with the complex reality of COVID, it's clear that life has offered us no reprieve from the tragic reality of racism and discrimination in America. This has most recently been made evident in the senseless violence against the Asian community in America.
We are a school community that is made of many individuals of various backgrounds from all parts of the globe, and each and every individual is of value and worthy of our respect, dignity, love and support. So, as we continue to do our best to live up to the idea of "true diversity" we want to let our Asian families know that PS 20 stands in solidarity with you and are here to support in any way that we can.
Words may do little to comfort; however, If you have ideas about how we can be of support, please email Board@ps20.org.
