Join Our Movement

We act for our students. We succeed with each other.
We ask only what is right: equal opportunity for every student, every educator, every family. Education is the cornerstone of our democracy, and it is worth fighting for.
At home, in school, online, in our nation's capital–there’s a right place for all of us to make a difference. Find the one that’s right for you.

I want to remind all of us of the influence and power we have in the lives of our students, in our schools, and our communities. That power is available to each and every one of us, every day.
