Spread out are various journals, coloring books, and colored pencils, all of her own creation.

“I was at work. And I was frustrated and overwhelmed,” She said. So she pulled out a coloring book and coloring pencils. “And I started to feel calmer.”

After that, her business birthed.

Seattle-area families of color are talking about improving remote education. Here are some of their ideas.

Regina Elmi is the executive director of the Somali Parent Education Board. Ann Ishimaru is associate professor of education at the University of Washington. The authors wrote this piece along with 10 other African American, Somali, Latina and Vietnamese parent leaders from the Renton, Federal Way, Kent, Highline and Seattle school districts.

Thousands of families and caregivers in King County are anxious as schools operate online. In recent months, we’ve experienced the devastation of COVID-19 and a summer of reckoning with anti-Black racism sparked by the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and the shooting of Jacob Blake.

We also see racial inequities deepening in our schools. As difficult and heartbreaking as this time has been, many families in BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) communities have been mobilizing and finding creative ways to support and educate their children.

We challenge educational systems to consider: What might

COVID-19 recession financial planning for women of color

I am facing a triple risk of financial failure in this pandemic:

— I am a Black woman.

        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        
        

 

— I am divorced and therefore a single parent.

— I run my own small business.

And like many mothers, I now have increased demands on my “second shift” — mothering and household management — due to a lack of in-person schooling.
