Across the country, communities are coping with the consequences of social injustice: poverty, racism, inequity, violence, isolation, and economic segregation. These challenges undermine the capacity and well-being of our nation’s most precious resource, our children. Front and center is the need to address in a meaningful way the issues of race, privilege, prejudice, and power. NASP has developed or identified these resources to help schools and families engage in constructive dialogue and work together to bring about positive change and unity to our communities. We will be adding to these resources over time.
Stay informed with these new handouts, discussion guides, podcasts, and more to advance social justice in your school and community, and participate in the national #SP4SJ dialogue on social media.
