Bristol Township School District is part­ner­ing with Bristol Cares Coalition for com­mu­ni­ty out­reach. The lat­est project was a Town Hall on Equity, Race and Racism. Truman High School Junior, Dahlia Gumaa sat on a dis­tin­guished pan­el of Civil Rights com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers. Dahlia has par­tic­i­pat­ed in sev­er­al Black Lives Matters events. She was a fea­tured speak­er at a Doylestown event this summer. 

She advo­cates for a diverse cur­ricu­lum and the recog­ni­tion of implic­it bias in the class­room.  Dahlia is an accom­plished stu­dent, writer and activist. There will be a fol­low up series to this event. Dahlia is look­ing for ward to con­tin­u­ing her advo­ca­cy work. and is look­ing for­ward to bring­ing about sys­temic change.
