All In: How Educators Can Support Student Activism

Student activists across the country are increasingly stepping up and speaking out about their schools’ response to sexual violence in hopes of inspiring change. Many educators wish to support these efforts but are concerned that doing so could jeopardize their own careers. Our panel of legal and organizing experts will explore the role of K-12 teachers and administrators in student activism and provide practical guidance for how to be part of the solution, no matter how big the problem.
