Dear InclusioNado Friends, There has been a lot of distraction this last year, but InclusioNado is staying true to our goal to eliminate harassment in the classroom, on the playground, in sports, and online. We continue to stay focused on three specific urgent changes that are needed.
Ways To Make A Difference
Become a part of the InclusioNado community to receive our newsletters and CUSD and community responses.
We demand CUSD protect all students, including BIPOC, LGBTQ, and children with disabilities from harassment. Next meeting Thursday, February 17.
We are grateful that you have chosen to take this journey with us. We look forward to learning and growing together!
Empowering students at Coronado Unified School District and engaging the community to make CUSD a safe place for all students.
As a community initiative, InclusioNado is run by volunteers and donations. Coronado community members have donated their talents as volunteers and cash donations for our modest budget.
We are an organization made up of parents, students, alumni, and concerned community members here to help navigate through the endless source of information about race and social injustice out there.
Every month, members of InclusioNado will read and review books on topics of diversity with diverse perspectives. Copies of the books reviewed will be distributed to Little Libraries all around Coronado.
Equity, Justice, Inclusion, and Diversity
Some students were asked by their parents to report Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) teachers who use the words Equity, Justice, Inclusion, and Diversity. These parents are marketing fear and highlighting these words as though they lead to something dangerous or wrong. And yet, for centuries, scholars, schools, and communities have used these words and concepts to imagine a more just, fair, and productive society and to debate the best ways to achieve that. Here is Merriam-Webster’s definition of these commonly used words:
Equity – fairness or justice in the way people are treated.
Justice – the quality of being just, impartial or fair; conformity to truth, fact, or reason.
Just – having a basis in or conforming to fact or reason; acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright or good; legally correct.
Inclusion – act or practice of including and accommodating people who have historically been excluded.
Diversity – state of having people who are of different races or have different cultures in a group or organization.
Let’s stop putting CUSD students and teachers at a disadvantage by censoring basic words like these.
