2023 National Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action
We’re amplifying National Black Lives Matter at School’s call for a Year of Purpose. Take one action a day between February 6-10 to join the movement.
Black Lives Matter at School: It’s more than a week of action
A growing number of educators have honest conversations about our nation’s past to help make a better future for all students. “Kids often think change only comes from a great person, they don't realize that it comes from ordinary people who are organized—and doing great things.”
