For many Americans, August is a time to reenter the classroom for another year of school. To kick off Get Back to School Month, we are highlighting education actions this year, giving you opportunities to support and advocate for our schools, students, and teachers.
However, education is not our only focus this month. August is also Black Business Month, International Peace Month, and National Water Quality Month, so look out for impactful ways to celebrate these causes this month. Other national and international holidays – such as International Day of the World’s Indigenous People (August 9th), National Nonprofit Day (August 17th), and World Humanitarian Day (August 19th) – will be recognized as well, so make sure to check back to find powerful ways to celebrate the myriad of holidays this August.
