United Way 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge

Join Superintendent Pero and PCSD employees by participating in Greater Rochester’s 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge with the United Way from October 23-November 20! As part of the 21-Day Equity Challenge, PCSD will be participating with more than 60,000 community members and 200 organizations in the Greater Rochester Area who are seeking to develop a deeper understanding of how inequity and racism affect our lives and our community.

From now until November 20, links to articles, videos, podcasts, and reflections from the 21-Day Equity Challenge will be posted here: https://www.pittsfordschools.org/Page/25506. This self-directed learning opportunity has a daily commitment of only 10-15 minutes a day. Daily topics include Understanding Bias, Levels of Racism, Housing Inequities, Building a Race Equity Culture and many more.

As a District, we share the goal of the United Way and the 21-Day Equity Challenge to “confront racism, bias and other social injustices to create a just and equitable community for all.” PCSD has been a long-standing partner with the United Way, and over the last five years, Pittsford Schools’ employees have donated more than $150,000 to support the United Way.

We hope you’ll join the District and the United Way in this important work towards building greater understanding and equity in our schools and communities.
