PGA Reps and Class Gatherings
Each classroom's PGA rep coordinates social activities just for that class and acts as a liaison to the broader PGA organization, answering questions and sharing information. Each class usually has one or two potluck gatherings over the course of the year, and this year, PGA reps have gotten creative with virtual gatherings, such as trivia night.
Evergreen is committed to diversity and inclusion as guiding principles. With the support of Director of Diversity Lakaya Renfrow, the goal of affinity groups is to foster connection and promote inclusion in our community.
Affinity groups provide a gathering space for people who share an identity (e.g., race, gender, religion, country of origin, language, family status, etc.). Although everyone shares different life experiences, affinity group participants are able to reflect on their shared identity, how that identity affects the way in which they move through the world, and how it impacts their experiences within a community.
Currently, Evergreen offers three affinity groups:
- Black Parents Resource Group
- Families of Twice Exceptional (2E) Children Group
- Single Parents Affinity Group
Note for 2020-2021: While this year of course looks different, we are making adjustments and moving ahead! Our PGA team is working hard to create virtual versions of many of the above events that encourage participation and connection for everyone.
