Teach and Demand Justice for George Floyd

The horrifying and senseless death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police has thrown the State of Minnesota and the entire country into a state of grief and turmoil.

It’s yet another example of the racism that black, brown and indigenous peoples in the United States live with every day. It’s also an opportunity for us to join together and rewrite the rules so everyone, with no exceptions, can thrive without fear, care for their families, have their voices heard, and their rights respected.

As Pedro Noguera wrote, “Educators. This is a teachable moment. Don’t be afraid to teach about the meaning of justice and the murder of George Floyd by the police. Our students are watching.”

Here are some things you can do.
