The shooting of Michael Brown and the protests that followed became a flashpoint for the discussion about race, policing, and justice. Using the information aftermath of Ferguson and a new unit co-created by Facing History and Ourselves and the News Literacy Project, this workshop will examine how implicit biases shape our understanding of the world, and how news literacy skills and concepts can help students find reliable information to make decisions, take action, and become effective civic participants in today’s complex information landscape.

Join us for our annual discussion of key education topics likely to surface during the upcoming legislative session. We'll hear directly from legislators about how they plan to address school funding, accountability, and mental health needs — and how the new Democratic majority changes the political dynamic under the Golden Dome. A Q&A will follow the discussion.
