Problem. Communities across Nevada call for more equitable practices, especially to reduce contact between communities of color and law enforcement, particularly in the African American community. By increasing our cultural awareness and highlighting the commitment of the state to support an Antirac- ist Nevada, we foresee a reduction in unrest and an increase in educational outcomes across all student groups. Purpose. The purpose of this policy paper is to highlight the importance of addressing racism and racialized bias in education. Recommendations. To address the rising need for equity practices and poli- cies in Nevada, we propose six recommendations to acknowledge and address equity and systemic racism issues: Building community legislative task force, addressing hiring practices, diversifying curriculum, increasing professional development, addressing discipline policies in education, clarifying legislation related to restorative justice, and increasing clarity regarding socioemotional learning standards and prac- tices. The following document highlights research and support for these practices and more detail on the practicality of these recommendations.
