A Campaign of the Zinn Education Project, coordinated by Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change

Join the Campaign

At school, we either learn or unlearn our power. By supporting educators in the classroom and the community, we make our schools sites of resistance, justice, joy, and liberation. Together, we are helping dismantle anti-Blackness in education.

Resources for Educators

Educators hold the power to combat racism and anti-Blackness, and transform classrooms into sites of resistance, hope, and learning about the beauty of Blackness. We’re here to support, with classes, study groups, lessons, podcasts and more.

Supporting Educators Teaching Truth

We must come together to support educators in turning classrooms and schools into sites of resistance, justice, joy, and liberation, and to organize against anti-Blackness with colleagues and in communities. We must march against police brutality in the streets. And we must teach for Black lives in our classrooms.

Racial justice educators are fighting back — and they need your help. We must come together to make their fight all of ours. Join us.
