MS Joint-School BIPOC Affinity meeting

The MS Joint-School Affinity Groups for AISNE Schools is a series in its second year. In these groups, AISNE middle school students have the opportunity to meet, have fun, and reflect on identity as groups who are positioned in the margins of whiteness. The sessions will always begin in one big group, but opportunities (depending on numbers) will arise for students to experience affinity in groups like multiracial, Black, Latine/ Latinx, Native/ Indigenous, South/ East Asian and Pacific Asian, Middle Eastern and North African. The session in December and session in April will be in-person at the Rivers School in Weston, MA from 5:30-7:30 with dinner provided. The other 5 sessions will be on Zoom, from 5-6pm. Sydnie Schwarz (she/her; biracial, East Asian and white) is the program point-person. Other BIPOC faculty/ students from other AISNE member schools may attend and lead/ co-lead other sessions.
