Educational Resources

Learning for Justice (formerly Teaching Tolerance) created a page in 2014 in response to the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and others that include some thoughtful blog posts, curriculum and other resources. 

The Zinn Education Project released the following resource collection in August 2014 after the death of Michael Brown.  These resources are geared towards middle and high school students and ways they can be proactive in their own communities.

We have also included links with information that may be helpful to share with families.

If you have additional resources that you find helpful and want to share with others, please email them to to be included in the list of resources.
