Celeste Ng is the bestselling author of three novels: Everything I Never Told You, Little Fires Everywhere, and her latest work, Our Missing Hearts. In 2020, Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere was adapted into a popular limited series on Hulu, starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. Following its nationwide success, Ng’s latest work, Our Missing Hearts, explores the ways that supposedly civilized communities can pretend to ignore the most searing injustice.

Most tickets, with the exception of a limited number of Pay What You Can and complimentary tickets, include a copy of Our Missing Hearts, mailed to the ticket holder’s door.

Hello CEL Community!

Happy Spring, hope you all are as well as can be. Sharing a resource – please share with others who would benefit with some additional ways to reach their goals. 🙂

It takes intentionality to work on how we relate with each other in the workplace, at home, and in the community. It is natural for us to have disagreements based on our diverse experiences and perspectives. The Center for Ethical Leadership offers workshops to help navigate the complexity of human interactions. It takes leaders to step up and help steward these relationships in healthy ways. Learn more and register for the workshop(s). https://www.ethicalleadership.org/events-workshops.html

“Not only did I enjoy this, but I would recommend it, and usually I do not find these informative or helpful at all. I will use many of these techniques with my teams. Thank you.” – Workshop Attendee

About

The Black Parents Alliance works within the community to discuss relevant topics, gain information, and make decisions to improve the education of our children. We advocate for policies that improve the intellectual, social, and emotional success of Black scholars and families; empower and give voice to the concerns and successes of Black families and scholars in Tacoma; and mobilize allies within the community to highlight the need for more robust systems of support for Black scholars.

While leaders and elected officials trumpet the importance of family, current policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels rarely provide sufficient support to teachers or to parents, nor is anyone held accountable for comprehensively and consistently engaging a diverse range of families. Further, although there are excellent parenting education programs currently in use across the United States, many of them do not possess the depth of cultural relevance that allows the curriculum to fully resonate with Black parents, in particular.

BPA believes in prioritizing conversations about race, culture, class and gender in the context of family engagement; not to say that these things must, or should, be at the forefront of all of our conversations, but rather to say that those of us who provide services and solutions should learn as much as we can about the context of race and culture bias in which our children and families are embedded. It is critical for us to make conscious decisions about engaging with family and community members in ways that demonstrate a deeper and more complete understanding, as part of our efforts to build positive relationships that ensure parent engagement is an ongoing series of supports that create a strong foundation of connection, particularly in the early years.

GOALS

  1. Meaningful engagement of parents of Black youth
  2. Build the capacity of parents and service providers for partnership
  3. Improving life outcomes for Black youth

One of the goals of capitalism is to make every creation a commodity to be sold. This is why, particularly for those of us who identify outside of or beyond paradigms centered around commerce – and those of us who are descendants of people called subhuman often struggle to locate pure pleasure, creativity and joy within ourselves and our writing practices. This generative webinar offers a joyous space with a mixture of lecture, meditation and grounding rituals, writing practices, exercises and prompts for reflection. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, will be to reject past-, pain- and trauma-centered narratives and re-center the expansiveness of what we can create when we fill ourselves (and each other) up with the sacred essence of bliss, possibility and inspiration.
