These resources provide strategies for educators, caregivers and community members to support the mental health and well-being of our nation’s youth.

Uplifting Accurate and Inclusive Education

In the latest issue of Learning for Justice magazine, a Black Alabama teenager recounts the damage an education that is neither accurate nor inclusive has caused in her life.

Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmation: A Moment of Historic Proportions

While celebrating Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, it’s critical that we go beyond a “famous first” to dig deeper. These resources explore lessons that this historic moment has provided, including equity, representation, intersectionality and inclusion.

Celebrating Arab American Heritage Month

During April, we uplift Arab American Heritage Month. These resources will help educators celebrate Arab identity, counter negative stereotypes, teach about Arab history and cultures, and ensure an inclusive environment that supports Arab American students this month and throughout the year.
