Coalition for Leading Anti-Racist Schools

Schools inflict acts of violence and racism that impact Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Although teachers and school leaders are often engaged in the work of leading antiracist school communities, they do not always have intra- or inter-organizational thought partners nor the platform to amplify their efforts. School leaders need help building anti-racist schools

The Coalition for Leading Anti-Racist Schools is an invitation to educational leaders around the world who are committed to learning, asking questions when they don’t know, and engaging in tough, meaningful conversations focused on equity and anti-racism.
