Educators and community members across the U.S. are joining in collaboration to support the National Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action (February 6–10, 2023) and Year of Purpose. This campaign promotes a set of national demands based on the Black Lives Matter guiding principles that focus on improving the school experience for students of color. The goal of the week of action is to encourage ongoing critical reflection, honest conversations, and targeted action for people of all ages in school communities to work towards building schools where Black lives matter.

D.C. area educators are encouraged to join Teaching for Change’s D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice (DCAESJ) for the sixth annual D.C. Area Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action from February 6–10, 2023.

Black Lives Matter at School

Year of Purpose

In addition to participation in the Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action, educators, students, parents, antiracist organizers, and education advocates are encouraged to participate in the Year of Purpose: ongoing activations and reflection throughout the school year to uplift Black students and undo institutional racism.

The centerpiece of the Year of Purpose is asking educators to reflect on their own work in relationship to antiracist pedagogy and abolitionist practice, persistently challenging themselves to center Black lives in their classrooms.

Peoples history teachers are being attacked with Red Scare tactics — their names published on lists by right-wing publications, threats of firing, and physical intimidation.

That is why the Zinn Education Project invited historian Dayo Gore to share stories from history about how to fight back. Join us on to learn about Black women radicals active in the revolutionary struggle during the Red Scare. This session is part of our Teach the Black Freedom Struggle online people’s history series.
