As kids head back to school in the coming weeks, it’s impossible to ignore the drastic changes they’ve witnessed in our country over the past few months. From police brutality and other racial violence against the Black community to a global pandemic that has shed light on the digital divide and other injustices, these issues have a profound impact on our kids’ health and well-being.

As we prepare for a new school year, how can educators speak openly with our kids about racial injustice? How do administrators instill the importance of creating and sustaining a school culture and curriculum of racial equity and justice? And how can parents and caregivers support educators by cultivating conversations at home? Please join Common Sense, social justice experts, school administrators, and educators for this important conversation.
