AISNE Middle School Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference

Belmont Day is proud to host AISNE’s 2019 Middle School Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Conference.

The conference will feature engaging, interactive, inspiring and enjoyable programs promoting Dr. Martin Luther King’s wisdom that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Each social identity group benefits when every social identity group sees itself as part of a common cause to increase equity and social justice. Middle schoolers can lead the way to a future defined by this crucial truth.
