The Black Student Union members and facilitators of River Ridge High School in North Thurston School District need our help!

After organizing a week-long strike against the school and district for failing to address racial and sexual violence, BSU members and leaders are facing punitive measures, unsafe learning and working environments, and retaliatory grading.

They are in urgent need of legal representation. WAESN is helping them create a legal fund. 100% of proceeds go directly to their legal representation.

Curriculum Coaching

WAESN is proud to host virtual curriculum coaching designed to provide collaborative spaces for Ethnic Studies educators to dig deep into their practice.

Join Our Round Table Conversations

Each month WAESN hosts a special guest and has a round table conversation about the contents of each PD Module. Participants can engage in a Q & A. It’s a great way to introduce yourself or go deeper into the contents of the PD Series.
