We, at Educators for Social Justice, are hurt. We are at a loss. We are struggling. However, we will take action to support our black sisters and brothers. What happened to George Floyd is unacceptable and intolerable. As an organization we will not sit on the sidelines and be silent when such injustice happens. We will continue to do our part to reduce hatred in the world and improve systems that are broken and cause harm to people of color.
Here is a link to resources on our website that can start to equip educators with knowledge to disrupt systems of oppression, racism, equity and white supremacy: Teaching to Disrupt White Supremacy Below also find two upcoming events hosted by our partners at EDHUB STL that will help us to continue taking action at our schools.
