“I would love people to know that social justice is education justice. We can’t have one without the other. We can’t focus only on the academic stuff if kids are dealing with so many other things. And how do we address those other things?”

Take Action on Racial & Social Justice

We are on a mission to dismantle unjust systems, and together, as educators and allies, we can take actions to address the inequities that result from institutionally racist policies and practices in our schools and the communities in which our students live. Join us to work for access and opportunity for all students.
