Social Justice Task Force Resources
WSASP has identified and compiled these resources through the work of school psychologists across the state of Washington. These come from a variety of sources and are intended to help schools and families engage in constructive dialogue about social justice issues in the hopes that we can work together to shift the conversation from hate and violence toward understanding and respect. We will be adding to these resources over time.
