Statement of Support: Black Lives Matter Week of Action
UrbEd is a strong supporter and collaborator in the Black Lives Matter Week of Action lead by Working Educators (WE). Students in urban school districts are primarily students of color and so our work is trying to uplift the voices and concerns of these students. We understand the generations of oppression and intersectional structural racism that impacts our urban schools today. We, as students, advocates, and reformers, stand with WE and organizations across the city saying: Black Lives Matter, Black Students Matter, and now is the time to mobilize and reform education. We encourage everyone to come with us to the Black Lives Matter week of action events, learn more about their demands that UrbEd has signed on to, and get involved!
