About Lawrence
map
Lawrence Massachusetts is located 25 miles north of Boston just off of Route 495. Built in the 1840's and planned as the nation's first industrial city and testimony to this concept are the massive mill buildings that line the Merrimack River, the striking clock and bell towers and the awesome Great Stone Dam.

The strength of the harnessed Merrimack River and its canals served to fuel the Lawrence mills that produced textiles for the American and European markets. The city was a world leader in production of cotton and woolen textiles by the early 20th century.

Lawrence has always been a multi ethnic and multi cultural city with a high proportion of foreign born residents thereby giving it the name "The Immigrant City"¯. Waves if immigrants coming to Lawrence to work in the mills beginning in the Late 1800's and continuing to the present day have made Lawrence truly a home to everyone,

Today, Lawrence remains an urban center in which 35% of its economy is still based of manufacture. The city is still a hub of textile, apparel and shoe companies such as Malden Mills, KGR, Grieco Brothers, New Balance and Cardinal Shoe. Combined with its affordable space and convenient location, newer companies in technology, health care, and manufacturing have chosen to locate in Lawrence.

Lawrence offers recreational, historical and cultural attractions along with people committed to living and working in a safe environment. The city boasts sailing on the Merrimack, Heritage State Park, art exhibitions and a wide range of cultural activities such as ethnic festivals that celebrate Lawrence's diversity and rich heritage.

Implementing an Anti-Bias Vision
Implementing an Anti-Bias Vision EEC Core Competency: Area 2: Guiding and Interacting with Children and Youth NH Core Knowledge Area (2) Building Family and Community Relationships Wednesday March 16th 6:30 pm -8:30 pm Little Sprouts @ Lawrence Training Room   Course Overview From a young age, children notice a “dominate” culture. We can’t change media, but we can make sure they don’t have that experience here. Implementing an Anti-Bias education can support children in a developing fuller, truer understanding of themselves and the word, and strengthen their sense of themselves as capable, empowered people. Come learn how to implement this vision of environment, curriculum and child-teacher-family interaction as a process, not an event to help minimize cultural discontinuity between home and school programs and eliminate indicators of prejudice for all of our children.  Trainer: Alison Boucher, Sr. Regional Director and Meghan McGinley Crowe, Director of Research and Development Meets both MA and NH qualifications for training   Is This Training for Me? ?Infant Educator ?Toddler Educator ?Preschool Educator ?School-Age Educator ?New Employees ?Seasoned Employees ?Supervisors- Educational ?Supervisors- Operational   What Can I Expect to Learn? This training will introduce learners to strategies to teach children the following four goals:  GOAL 1: Each child will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride and positive social identities. GOAL 2: Each child will express comfort and joy with human diversity; accurate language for human differences, and deep, caring human connections. GOAL 3: Each child will increasingly recognize unfairness, have language to describe unfairness, and understand that unfairness hurts. GOAL 4: Each child will demonstrate empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discriminatory actions.
