The Fight to Unite School Assembly presents a non-threatening, interactive cross-cultural experience to counterbalance the forces that perpetuate intolerance, aggression or even violence.
Fight to Unite offers a safe place for a deeper connection between diverse people who comprise your school community. It is geared toward promoting a broader understanding of the challenges, issues, and opportunities that face not only students and staff of color, but also their peers from all cultures, faiths, and socio-economic backgrounds.
Fight to Unite is facilitated by a trained CulturePrep moderator and is devoted to addressing the personal, relational and systemic issues around cross-cultural topics. This is accomplished through the unique combination of:
- Movie clips depicting cross-cultural themes common to your school
- Live testimonies & stories from members of your school community
- Participation in online 20 question School Cross-Cultural Climate Survey
- Affirm a diversity-friendly school by providing a safe place for face-to-face dialogue between many segments of the school community
- Empower all participants to share their views
- Expose obstacles to building authentic relationships through a protocol that encourages honesty and self-examination
- Assess your school cross-cultural climate with customized cross-cultural survey results to fit your needs
Dialogue between audience members plays a key role in the assembly’s efficacy. These discussions serve as an opportunity for students to discuss issues facing young people, their school, and their communities. It is an opportunity to explore solutions and to talk about affecting positive change. It is more than a momentary infusion of hope, energy and idealism. It is a call to action. Fight to Unite is an appeal for culturally diverse young people to make a difference in their school and community.
The movie clips provide the inspiration; the dialogue provides the insights, while the School Cross-Cultural Climate Survey responses raise collective awareness of the importance of advancing cross-cultural relationships in your school and community.
Who Attends? Students, staff, and various interest groups that represent your school community. Community leaders might also be invited to attend.
