Calm Classroom stands in solidarity with the Black community, and the Black school communities we partner with around the country.
Mindfulness is not about silencing, dampening or resisting what we feel. Emotions like anger, rage, sadness, and grief are powerful tools that can help us to mobilize our inner resources and create change.
Long-standing issues like institutionalized racism, inequality, and police violence greatly contribute to the epidemic of chronic stress and trauma so many educators and young people are facing in this country.
We are committed to continuing to provide accessible, trauma-informed mental health resources and support to school communities with the awareness that ‘calm’ is not always the answer, but it is a fundamental human right that we all deserve access to.
We are committed to continuing to grow our allyship so that we can most effectively participate in the movement to dismantle systemic racism in ourselves and our communities.
