Commemorate the collaborative efforts of 10 middle and high school students. These young scholars have embarked on a project titled "It Takes a Village," during which they conducted oral interviews with esteemed individuals from the Black community, including artists, musicians, politicians, educators, and TV personalities.

OEI & the Office of Black Community Engagement supported the ITAV cohort during their project and trip to Washington D.C earlier this year.

The City’s Office of Equity and Inclusion releases the following statement regarding the racist murders in Jacksonville, Florida:

The Office of Equity & Inclusion condemns the racist murders in Jacksonville, Florida. We, along with the entire Black community across the nation, are mourning the loss of life of three lives: Angela Michelle Carr, Jerrald Gallion and Anolt Joseph “AJ” Laguerre Jr. in an egregious act of racial violence carried out by a white man. We are reminded of the horrifying reality and threats Black people in America face every day while simply living their lives.

This attack demonstrates the need for anti-racist education in our communities, our schools, and institutions. We must continue to advocate and enact anti-racist policies both locally and nationally to ensure that the history of racist violence and anti-racist lessons are not suppressed and erased leading to the continued circulation of white supremacist ideologies that lead to senseless acts such as this. The Office of Equity and Inclusion is dedicated to making these changes so that our community, specifically our Black community, can thrive and live lives full of joy, abundance, and safety.
