Black Lives Matter at School

This week, thousands of educators across the country are wearing “Black Lives Matter” shirts to school and teaching lessons about structural racism, intersectional black identities, black history, and anti-racist movements for the nationally organized week of action.

As part of this movement to educate and organize around racial justice in education, NEA’s Human & Civil Rights Department has developed a new resource site, Black Lives Matter at School.

Take Action

On the site, you can pledge to grow the movement for racial justice in education. Sign the pledge and receive a free download of this NEA Ed Justice Black Lives Matter at School poster:

On the site you’ll also find:

  • Stories highlighting NEA member voices from around the country.
  • Examples of educators, students and communities that have stood up and mobilized for racial justice in education.
  • Resources from NEA locals, school districts, and community partners.
  • Art and videos for members and allies to use in their own local efforts.
