Schoolhouse Supplies stands with Black Lives Matter. We stand in solidarity with our community members who are taking action to demand justice and liberation. As an organization we commit to advocate, support and amplify the voices of Black students, teachers and community members. The American public education system has a long history of exclusion and disenfranchisement; a pillar of institutionalized racism that disproportionately affects Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and low-income students. Education is a powerful weapon that many of us do not have equal access to. We strive to ensure every student has access to the tools they need to harness the power of education.
