[by Connie Martin and Jackie Doherty]:

Requesting that the Lowell School Committee vote to assert that Racism is a National Public Health Crisis affecting the health, safety and educational experience and outcomes of all students, especially the majority of students of color in the district. This will require immediate, on-going, and long term responses and action from the Lowell Public Schools to affirm our steadfast commitment to support efforts both nationally and locally aimed at understanding, addressing and dismantling racism in all its forms, from our public schools.
