Chicana M(other)work Collective | Social Justice Summer Curriculum for Children of Color

Developed by the Chicana M(other)work Collective, this 6-week Social Justice Summer Curriculum was created with the intention of teaching children of color about different forms of oppression and social justice, and how they can create a more sociall just world through art, activism, critical thinking in writing, thought, dialogue, and building relationships. This curriculum was originally developed for children ages 4-10, but can be modified by other age groups.

View the curriculum on their website, and see their statement below:

“We, the Chicana M(other)work Collective, stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. In our collective, we identify as Afro-Xicana, Xicana, and Chicana-Indigena as a way to recognize the over 500 years of genocidal erasure and resistance. Through our work, we strive to make visible the experiences of Mothers of Color in our communities, institutions, and families. As Mothers of Color navigating and challenging state violence and racial injustice, we honor the voices and lived experiences and leadership of Black people as we work towards dismantling anti-Blackness in our communities while being accountable for our harms. We remain committed to the collective project of liberation.

We’ve compiled this 6-week Social Justice Summer Curriculum because we believe that teaching abolition and liberation begins at home. We invite you to share, exchange, and develop this curriculum in your own small learning circles with your children and other parents/caregivers in your community. Feel free to adapt it to fit the needs of your circles and feel free to send us any suggested edits or ideas you may have for the future. En comunidad se hace todo/we do all things in/with community.”
