PM Representation Wall

PM Representation Wall

In PM this year, we created a representation wall where we highlight certain role models in society and in our own MCDS community. On this wall, we wanted to focus on the different identity lenses (age, sex, gender, nationality/immigration status, race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, ability/disability status, and socio-economic status) and discuss different people that have spoken up about various diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) topics.

For the beginning of school, we decided to highlight people who take risks. We know the first few months of school can be a big transition period for some of our students, so our representation wall is a way for us to encourage our students to take risks while they are going through this new transition and learning new spaces and faces.

This is what our new representation wall looks like!

For our first round with the representation wall, we highlighted Billy Porter, Bethany Hamilton, Colin Kaepernick, Jazz Jennings, and one of our PE teachers at MCDS, Kierra Scalercio. Here is what we wrote about each of these changemakers!

We will continue to keep you updated on what we post on our representation wall here on our blog and on our Instagram page (@MCDSAfterSchool), and we encourage you to stop by the PM room to check it out for yourself!
