Learn About Hosting a Pollyanna Conference

Whether your school community that has been striving to create more just and equitable spaces for decades or is embarking on this journey in newly-informed ways, we believe there is no better way to forward DEIB goals than to set aside the time and space to consider them deeply, thoughtfully, and in community with others. Email us to learn more about the benefits of hosting Pollyanna’s Intra- and Multi-School Conference! This session is open to DEI Directors, Administrators, and Heads of Schools.

Pollyanna's Free K-12 Racial Literacy Curriculum

Please download Pollyanna’s K-12 Racial Literacy Curriculum and email us for assistance implementing. Without a sincere effort to understand the historical roots and current problems caused by race and racism, we will continue to passively accept the status quo.
