Black Lives Matter at School
Black Lives Matter at School is a national movement organizing for racial justice in education. We encourage all educators, students, parents, unions, and community organizations to join the annual Black Lives Matter at School week of action during the first week of February each year. Additionally, there are Black Lives Matter at School “Year of Purpose” activities throughout the school year.
