Standing in Solidarity: Resources for Talking About Police Brutality

Minnesota Homeschoolers’ Alliance stands in solidarity with the families who have lost loved ones to police brutality, as well as with the community members who rise up to demand justice. 

When tragic events unfold in our community, it can be hard as a parent to determine how best to talk with our children about these important issues. As with the unlawful shooting of Amir Locke, his heartbreaking death shook not just the Minneapolis community, but communities around the country.

 Minnesota Homeschoolers’ Alliance recognizes that parents may be looking for resources to help support home education–for themselves and for their learners–at this time.

We hope the following resources will help you and your students learn and take action, and recognize and do the necessary work to ensure equity in all our communities. These resources are by no means all-inclusive of the subject nor are they the only resources available. However, they may serve well as a starting point for those wanting to include social justice topics into their home curriculum

*Note: These resources may be triggering for specific communities.
