Equity and equality issues are rarely discussed in our community especially when the community is extremely diverse. In light of Niles North’s equity efforts, they had an equity panel in the Auditorium on Nov. 28. Students of different cultures and races were featured on the Equity Panel to talk about racism and hatred taking place at our school.
There was also an equity panel in the state of Michigan that students from District 219 attended. The event was called Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN), and many of our students who are in different grades gathered with students from all around the nation to talk about their experiences. Udoka Nwansi, sophomore, was one of the few students who attended the MSAN event. “We are really fortunate to have support from our school. They gave us a great opportunity to learn, discuss, and transcend inequity in our school community,” Nwansi said.
Students at Niles North think that the school needs to do a lot more to achieve equity. “Moving forward, we need to continue to have conversations about race, because these discussions are where the most growth comes from. Then from there, we’ll be able to take action,” Nwansi said.
“I’m working to push the authorities further left on issues of race and systematic injustice. I think we need to continue the dialogue in conversation and increased membership and energy at different social justice clubs. We also need to escape our own liberal bubble and interact with the other side to truly grow,” Louie Siegel, sophomore, said.
