Going to the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) Conference next week? We hope to see you at a session led by SEED Co-directors Gail Cruise-Roberson, Emmy Howe, and Jondou Chase Chen, "Stories for liberation: Laying the Foundation for Ongoing Conversations on Race and Gender in Schools."
We're delighted to republish this piece by Captain Rick Wester, Commandant of Cadets at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and a SEED leader. This article originally appeared in the October/November 2018 issue of The Bulletin, the magazine of the United States Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association.
By SEED Co-directors Gail Cruise-Roberson and Emmy Howe, and SEED Associate Director Ruth Mendoza. ReSEED is a chance for seasoned SEED leaders to reconnect, refresh, retreat and reinvigorate in the company of other SEED folks. The most recent ReSEED, held October 26-28, 2018, came at an important time in our country, as many people have faced one of the most challenging periods in recent memory.
