With social and racial injustices affecting young people on a daily basis, we — the educators, volunteers, and caring adults of 826CHI — strive to raise our awareness of these issues in order to best support our students. Once a month, 826CHI’s staff convenes for the “Justice & Equity Dialogues,” a space that allows us to take turns leading a conversation about issues that affect our students, as well as reflect upon the role we play in cultivating a diverse and inclusive third space for learning and self-expression in our students’ lives. In this place, separate from school and home, our students know that caring and supportive adults are there to help them experience success.
