A Statement From Heinemann

BLM

The following is a statement from our publisher.

We stand in support of and solidarity with a community in pain. Heinemann is dedicated to teachers. Implicit in these words is our obligation to help dismantle the systemic racism and inequity that exist in our country. We understand how much work there is to be done, and we recognize our responsibility.

Three years ago, Heinemann undertook a large-scale initiative to examine issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As a result, our team and our authors, the teachers whose voices we amplify and who influence our work, are more representative of the world we live in, and we are learning. But progress has been slow, and we now recognize this is simply not enough.

The only way to end white supremacy is to address the systems that allow it to continue. With other educators, we will lean harder into anti-racism. As we educate ourselves and through our ongoing action, you will see our commitment demonstrated in the faces, the words, and the work of our authors and employees.

...

For a list of anti-racist resources that we are reading and learning from, read the original post on the Heinemann blogWe hope you’ll share your own recommendations and your thoughts as we work together to be anti-racist.
