Resources for our Community

Resources for our Community

Dear RPS Community,

This past weekend, many families honored and celebrated Juneteenth, which marks the date in 1865 when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, to work to ensure all enslaved people were freed—two and half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. 

Just as freedom from slavery was slow to arrive then, so too is social justice for the African American community today. We must continue to confront personal biases and institutionalized racism if we are to create a world with justice and freedom for all.

In RPS, as educators, family members and lifelong learners, we acknowledge the patterns of inequality that still exist today. Together, as a community, we have the power to create change and to bring about racial, social and economic justice. 

In recognition of this holiday and to support us all in this work, we would like to share just a few of the many resources that some of our staff members have found meaningful when it comes to learning more about Juneteenth and the legacy of racism in our country. 

While it may sometimes feel like a never-ending struggle, we know that we must continue to learn and create change so that our children and grandchildren can live in a world where every individual is truly free.
