Anti-Racist Educators Group

Racism is a topic of conversation that should happen in the classroom. This conversation must start by being honest with ourselves—processing our own conscious and unconscious thoughts and biases—and then engaging our students in the conversation. 

 

As educators across the nation are speaking against racism and advocating for sustainable change in our country now, our students are noticing. It is never too soon to talk to young people about racism, and attending a support group is a great way to start the conversation. Join Just Communities and other educators every month in creating a space of support and truthful conversations to continue combating racism in schools.
