In our commitment to diversity and inclusion, The Michigan Council for the Social Studies, and the Michigan Council for History Education, condemn the racist practices and policies that have resulted in the use of violence against members of our society, particularly members of the Black community. We are appalled by the killings and brutality. As organizations committed to social justice and racial equality, we continue to stand with our Black students, families, and educators. We will work to change the narrative about race in this nation by using our voice to make positive changes in education and our communities. We will continue to help address and eliminate racism, prejudice, and bigotry in all forms through honest dialogue and education. Informed people have the tools to engage in substantive conversation, to advocate for important policy changes, and to take informed action to foster positive changes in our communities and for future generations.
