Anti-Bias Anti-Racist (ABAR) Resources and Curriculum
February is Black History Month and the first week of February is Black Lives Matter Week of Action. Outside of those specific events, we should all be striving to be anti-racist educators, to celebrate communities of color, and to encourage our students to look at the world through a thoughtful and equitable lens.
February 6th-10th is Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action. During this week, educators across the nation are intentional about listening, learning, teaching, and acting to celebrate and lift up Black communities.

Join us as we celebrate Black students, educators, families, and communities!
