The last few weeks have been very difficult times for all Americans as we see injustices happening each day. It is also a time to be grateful for those of us who are advocating for social justice in our communities, states and country. Our demands to address justice, equity and drive inclusion are needed. Given all the coverage in the news and the coverage in our communities and homes, I think it is important to share some great resources on how to speak to children about social justice.
