Learn more about the national movement and The year of purpose:

The national Black Lives Matter at School movement urges us to move beyond celebrating Black lives just once a year towards making racial equity a reality by centering Black lives everyday. In addition to the BLM at School Week of Action (that is organized during the first week of February), educators, students, and parents are encouraged to participate in ongoing activations and reflection throughout the school year by engaging in the Year of Purpose. As a volunteer planning committee we are focusing on one month of coordination but encourage students, families and educators to expand beyond February!
