The Black Lives Matter Week of Action in Schools is designed to spark critical reflection and honest conversation in school communities around issues of racial justice. With acts of racism and xenophobia multiplying across Oregon and around the country, it’s essential that we elevate the voices, experiences, and history of those communities under attack.
The Black Lives Matter Week of Action in our Schools started last year, organized by educators in Seattle and Philadelphia. This year, the effort is nationwide, with organizing centered around the week of February 5-9, 2018.
If you are interested in participating—organizing an action at your school, hosting a week of lessons connected to the Black Lives Matter movement, or simply teaching a lesson, please add your contact information in the form below, and we will connect you with resources and other educators who wish to collaborate on this.
