RUC (Rainier UniServ Council) Rainbow Educators Monthly Meetup- HYBRID
We are creating an LGBTQ+ sub committee of our Equity Team (RECN) that will be working on supporting educators in creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ students and staff for their schools, offices, or campuses. This group will be presenting/co-presenting trainings, intervening when LGBTQ+ issues come up, and supporting student clubs. This committee will meet in person at the Rainier UniServ Council Office with an option for folks to zoom in. Dinner will be provided.
OTHER WEA TRAININGS OFFERED
RECN is hosting monthly RECN Meetups to support our BIPoC members and also increase our work in White Ally & Accomplice trainings to push forward now. We can't stop. We must keep pushing forward while taking care of our beloved communities of color. We come together for next steps of action to move us forward in anti-racism work.
Currently due to COVID19, we are hosting virtual meetups via Zoom. A link will be provided for your to register.
Many of our RECN Core Team members are also WEA trainers. We offer courses in Cultural Competency and Implicit Bias as well as Certification trainings and are always expanding our work towards anti-racism in our unions and our public schools.
Our RECN Core Team members use our diverse voices to write about a variety of topics and highlight perspectives of people of color and other marginalized groups that need to be heard.

EQUITY CONFERENCE 3.0 - 2022
RECN Core Team has engaged students and staff in listening sessions at several schools in the Rainier UniServ Council area. Feedback and follow up on accountability with administrators to remove equity barriers is always part of our goal as we provide our Black Indigenous students and educators of color a safe space to speak their truth.
RECN’s Mentor Program is designed to recruit, support, and retain educators of color. Find out more on our mentor program page.
Rainier Educators of Color Network [RECN] Equity Leadership Team organized a conference attended by over 350 WEA members, students, community members, administrators and legislators.
