A community where diversity matters
On June 13th, 2020, at Spreckels Park in Coronado CA, students, alumni and parents echoed emotionally disturbing personal stories about systemic racism experienced at the Coronado Unified School District (CUSD). The narrated details unveiled the quiet, but alarming reality at CUSD, educational racism and microaggressions were accepted and denied, but most concerning, fomented with silence.

Here to Serve
After the march, Coronado awoke to a painful reality, the CUSD was at the core of the problem. The awareness began to take center stage in our community, recognizing the need to demonstrate the type of solidarity that prevails beyond a one-time event or political statements to avoid blame with promises of support and change. As the educational system had failed students and parents for years, accountability was at the forefront.
Over the next few months, more and more student stories surfaced. Their struggle became the catalyst to empower parents, students and community members who recognized the importance of CUSD accountability to achieve transformative change. The time had come to mobilize from awareness into action. Consequently, parents and students decided to embark in the journey for racial justice, equity, inclusion and diversity at the CUSD, recognizing that our beloved community support would be essential to implement transformative change.
Therefore, with love for Coronado and All students at CUSD, we launched a community initiative focused on the value of inclusion and diversity, embracing our commitment to stay InclusioNado!
