Promote Self- and Community Care as COVID-19 Continues

As we continue to adapt to a global pandemic, we acknowledge the difficulties of this moment, and we encourage you to take care of yourself and your students. These resources recommend taking a trauma-informed approach to self- and community care. 

Happy Women's History Month!

During Women’s History Month and year-round, recognize and uplift women change makers who are more likely to have been silenced or hidden from history. Use these resources to introduce students to a diversity of women—and show them that they, too, are change makers.

Supporting Student-led Action and Protests

As some states and districts drop mask mandates amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many students continue to petition and stage walkouts to demand safer health protocols. Some students are protesting against instances of racism and sexual assault as well. These LFJ resources provide guidance for supporting your students who are demanding that their concerns are taken seriously.

Prioritize Black Mental Health and Self-care

Current events may be hard to grapple with as multiple historically Black colleges and universities faced bomb threats, Minneapolis police fatally shot Amir Locke, and many states and districts continue to ban teaching inclusive books and talking about race. Amidst these aggressions, we want to remind Black educators to practice self-care—and all educators to elevate the importance of Black students experiences and their mental health. These resources can help.
