We invite you to download an activity guide developed by Mariame Kaba, founder and director of Project NIA. The guide includes activities and resources that educators and youth workers can use to talk with young people about policing and violence.
Special thanks to Caitlin Seidler for once again lending her design skills and talents to this effort. Thanks also to the following individuals and organizations: Chicago PIC Teaching Collective, Literature for All of Us, Mikva Challenge, Megan Milks, Jeanne Walker, Lewis Wallace, and Rachel Marie-Crane Williams.
Whenever possible, we try to offer our resources at no or low-cost. However, we do ask that in return you please take the time to share some information with us about who you are and how you are planning to use this guide. Please take a couple of minutes to complete our short survey before downloading the guide.
Included in the activity guide are 20 poems about policing and violence that have been collected by Mariame over several years. For those who simply want to download the poems without the other activities, we’ve created a separate publication available here (PDF).
