NEA will research the organizations attacking educators doing anti-racist work and/or use the research already done and put together a list of resources and recommendations for school districts, locals, and individual educators to utilize when they are attacked. The research, resources and recommendations will all be shared with members through NEA’s social media, an article in NEA Today, and a recorded virtual presentation/webinar.

Rationale/Background

The attacks on anti-racist teachers are increasing, coordinated by well-funded organizations such as the Heritage Institute. We need to be better prepared to respond to these attacks so that our members can continue this important work.
