The Network of Public Education extends its support and solidarity to educators in Washington state who are taking a strong public stand in their action this week. By wearing Black Lives Matter t-shirts, they are affirming their opposition to the unequal and even deadly use of force against Black people. We recognize the need for educators to stand with their students and community members in demanding an end to this violence. We honor their stand.
