For the past several years, there have been incidents of police officers involved in the deaths of African-American and Latino men and in many of these cases, police officers were not indicted and/or convicted when brought to trial. These cases have brought about a wide range of emotions, conversations, policy proposals, protest and actions. Because this is an important conversation that teachers and parents/family members want to have with young people, below are relevant lesson plans, related curricula and additional anti-bias resources and strategies to help you discuss this topic with your students.
