Education Justice is Racial Justice

One of seven offset posters that were printed and given away for free to educators at the NEA (National Education Association) RA (Representative Assembly) in Houston in July 2019. These posters are now up in classrooms across the country. Your welcome to print copies of this image for the classroom, union hall, or other spaces. Note that the image is Creative Commons and not for commercial use. The Art Build Workers collaborated with the NEA on organizing the offset posters and two-art builds during the Houston conference. Participating artists for the offsets included Favianna Rodriguez, Ernesto Yerena, Melanie Cervantes and Jesus Barraza, Nisha Sethi, Josh MacPhee, Jennifer White Johnson and Vy Vu, and Claudio Martinez and Paul Kjelland.


A multicolored background of overlapping ink rolls in reds, orange, yellow, and turquoise features a stylized illustration of a person of color raising their fist in the air. The figure is rendered of joined circular shapes that follow anatomical form. Below is a silhouette of a large crowd of protesters with arms and hands in the air, holding flags, raised fists, and peace signs. Above, the text states: “EDUCATION JUSTICE IS RACIAL JUSTICE.”
