Join Black Lives Matter at School, the WA State NAACP Youth Council, and National Educators United on October 14th at 5 pm PDT/8 pm EDT for a town hall to celebrate George Floyd’s Birthday. We'll have educators, students, and activists speaking from Minneapolis, Louisville, and around the country.
The Uprising for Black lives has prompted the Black Lives Matter at School movement to expand its annual Week of Action the first week of February to a “Year of Purpose”. We ask educators to participate in intentional days of action throughout the school year uplifting different intersectional themes vital to making Black lives matter in schools, communities, and beyond.
“Justice for George” is a day to remember him and call for the defunding of the police and the redirecting of those funds towards social programs and education. In addition, we ask educators to reflect on their own work in relationship to antiracist pedagogy and abolitionist practice, persistently challenging themselves to center Black lives in their classrooms.
