Not only are you looking to be work towards anti-racism for yourself, but you are also making that a priority for the young people in your life - Thank you!
Look to your broader community for support - take encouragement and strategies from blogs, school administration, the AEA, or anybody else that motivates your progress.
The resources listed below are not mutually exclusive. Those grouped for parents may be beneficial to classroom teachers and paraprofessionals. The opposite is true as well. Use what speaks to you and your journey towards anti-racism.
Discussing race can be difficult, especially in a classroom of young people. The resources listed below provide tools for making those discussions more meaningful.
Parents and caregivers, your children are watching you. Modeling anti-racism in your actions and what you are teaching your children has a huge impact on their personal development.
These resources will get you started, but keep learning. And when you mess up (because you will, everyone does!), show your children how to accept feedback with grace.
