HSTA’s statement and call to action against systemic racism, oppression, and violence

‘As teachers, we have a responsibility to educate our keiki and our communities on issues of racial and social justice.’

The deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor reflect just a fraction of unacceptable violations rooted in a deep history of systemic racism, oppression, and violence. We cannot allow this to continue.
