Social Justice Trainings

Educators can be agents for social justice.
We can fight for what is best for our students. We can, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. put it, support students living in “the fierce urgency of now.”
Our trainings sessions — conducted remotely for now, and eventually in person — can be customized to address your community's particular needs.

Bullying & Sexual Harassment

Recognizing the pervasive role bullying plays in the lives of today’s students, NEA offers a national program to engage members in bullying prevention—providing members with resources and skills to prevent student-to-student bullying, cyberbullying, sexual harassment, and sexting.

Cultural Competence

Recognizing that culturally responsive instruction helps educators close achievement gaps, NEA offers a program that expands the capacity of educators to serve students from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Diversity

NEA views the diversity that exists among our members, staff, students, and communities as a great asset for public education and works to maximize this asset through the National Diversity Training Program.

Safety, Bias, & LGTBQ+ Issues

Designed for all members, particularly those committed to addressing bias around sexual orientation and gender identity, this program teaches school personnel how to create a safe school climate for students and staff.

Social Justice

Rooted in the vision, mission, and values of NEA, the Social Justice Training Program helps members draw the connection between achieving social justice in schools and realizing academic success for all students. The program lays the foundation for NEA’s social justice work by teaching educators to create more just and effective learning environments.

Welcoming Schools

HRC Foundation’s Welcoming Schools series helps elementary school educators embrace family diversity, create LGBTQ+ and gender-inclusive schools, prevent bullying, and support transgender and non-binary students.

If we don’t achieve racial justice in our schools, we cannot expect to achieve it in our society. It begins with us.
