Resource Pages for Families and Educators
Bookmarked 3 times

Inclusive education promotes learning spaces that are affirming and safe for all young people, considers representation of diverse identities in curricula and policies, and is intentional in creating equitable opportunities for all children to learn and thrive. To strengthen our democracy, it's crucial now more than ever to champion education that is inclusive and promotes critical thinking.

Learning for Justice’s resource pages offer collections of LFJ articles and resources that address a priority topic or celebrate a cultural event or heritage month. Pages may also include SPLC resources and external resource links.

Note: These resource pages will be continuously updated to share and highlight new content on the specific topic.
