What is Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action?

Black Lives Matter at Schools Week of Action began in Seattle, Washington at John Muir Elementary School in 2016. From there, educators in cities across the nation, began organizing a week to intentionally celebrate the lives of Black students, teachers and families. Cities including Seattle, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Portland, Oregon!  

Black Lives Matter at Schools Week of Action consists of educators teaching lessons about systemic and structural racism, intersectional Black identities and Black history.
