INDIANAPOLIS — Marion County School Superintendents say they are standing together against racism and declaring each of their schools a "no racism zone."
All 11 school districts in Marion County want to address racism, harassment, and discrimination in their schools and make them anti-racism zones.
Schools will display "No Racism Zone" signs and review district policies and employee training to make sure they can address racism in a meaningful way. Earlier this week, the districts posted a video (click play on the video above to watch) pledging to stand together against racism.
Parents will be given a list of resources to help them discuss racism with their students. The resources are available for children of every age, posted on their school's website.
In a stance of solidarity together, the stadium lights at each school will be turned off for 8 minutes and 46 seconds on Friday in honor of George Floyd, who was killed in Minneapolis by police.
