As children and youth across King County head back to school, we’re excited to highlight the Liberated Village’s new website as an excellent resource created by and for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) educators, community partners, parents, caregivers, and others who are creating positive school environments for our students.
What is the Liberated Village?
Formerly known as Trauma Informed and Restorative Practices (TIRP) Village, the Liberated Village is a community of 30 partners who are working together to implement innovative anti-racist trauma-informed and restorative practices across 55 schools in ten school districts.
By bringing students, families, teachers, school districts, community-based organizations and local government together, the Liberated Village partners recognize that it takes a community to help children and youth succeed.
We see generations of scholars experiencing liberation and healing from systemic racism by living into their true cultural identity, brilliance, and purpose.
Visit the Liberated Village’s new website here to learn about their collective impact and mission, hear their community stories, join upcoming educational trainings, and access additional resources and materials for educators/administrators, scholars, and parents and caregivers.
