Responding to Charlottesville

The violence over the weekend of August 12-13 in Charlottesville, Virginia has struck a chord with us, and with the country at large.  We’re compiling a list of resources and ideas for teachers, students and others to understand what happened, but more importantly to take action in combating hate and prejudice in their schools and communities. Check it out on the YCD Blog here.
