The National Black Lives Matter in Our Schools Week of Action

Last year, Seattle and Philadelphia educators organized Black Lives Matter actions in their schools. This year, many more cities like New York, Chicago, Boston, DC, Baltimore and many more are joining their efforts to organize a Black Lives Matter Week of Action in our Schools the week of February 5th.
 
If you want to organize a Black Lives Matter Week/Day of Action in your city/town/state, message our page and we will connect you to the national organizing committee. We are in the process of updating and creating new resources to use locally and nationally, including national demands and a national curriculum guide.
