#BlackLivesMatter

Below are some resources we hope can help to provide a moment of self-care in the midst of this very painful time – whether you are an ally seeking to understand for yourself and your own organization or a parent seeking to explain this moment and America’s painful history of race and racism to your children.

Our parent leaders and staff at PAVE also believe that it is our responsibility to actively support anti-racism in our schools, our workplaces, our communities, and our families. As a system, we must elevate the voices of Black people and acknowledge the pain, trauma, and injustice that generations of Black families in DC and across our country have experienced. 

All of us need to be courageous in starting conversations that recognize and elevate racial justice, and push ourselves and our institutions, including our education system, to build a more equitable world for this generation and those to come.
