AASP Social Justice Resources
As events unfold around the country, we are again reminded that members of our communities face the realities of social injustice every day. As school psychologists, we have a responsibility to help students and their families cope with the challenges they are presented. To that end, the Arizona Association of School Psychologists has created a Social Justice Resources page with links to books, videos and lesson plans that we hope you find beneficial.

AASP has released a Position Statement on Social Justice, Prejudice and Discrimination. Click here for the paper.
