NAVIGATING POLITICS WITH DIGNITY IN THE NEW DECADE

RESOURCES & MATERIALS

Assuring young people’s safety and inclusion is not political.

Our democracy can only survive if  young people are taught that disagreement is not disrespect; and we are all committed to creating and protecting the environment for civil discourse.

 Our history is not just words in a book and dates to be memorized.  Our history is about a country struggling to uphold the belief that all people have inalienable rights and that this core value builds and strengthens our communities

Below are the resources we have been working on. New resources are released each month. Be sure you’re on our mailing list and recieve them directly!

ARTICLES. LESSON PLANS. WEBINARS. DISCUSSION GUIDES. 

ANTI-RACISM RESOURCES. COVID-19 RESOURCES. 2020 ELECTION RESOURCES.
