As the nation digests the trial verdict in the death of George Floyd, communities may see the demands for justice grow more visible through public demonstrations over policing and the treatment of Black and Latino individuals. Adding to this tension are the recent tragic deaths of Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo as well as increasing acts of hate towards Asian Americans. This is an opportune time to prepare for demonstrations in your school community.



The National School Public Relations Association condemns the recent wave of violence against Asian Americans in communities throughout the United States. These events have had a devastating impact on those directly affected by them as well as on the wider Asian American community, which includes students, families and staff in many school districts. To support districts in communicating on this issue, NSPRA is gathering examples of school communications on this difficult topic.
