Get Involved

Along with schools across the nation, New York City educators, parents, and students organize and implement an annual Week of Action in schools for Black Lives Matter. The Week of Action is centered around the thirteen guiding principles of the Black Lives Matter movement, and includes advocacy, activism and celebration both in schools and our communities.
