We are school and parent leaders advocating for world-class public schools for all students.
The education system in our communities was NOT designed to serve all children equitably, so we organize for systems that educate and liberate ALL children, particularly those impacted most by racism. We believe that lasting change will only come through the leadership of parents and educators, so we build their capacity across California and nationwide to realize the excellent, equitable public school systems that our children deserve.
Seen and Affirmed: “What Black Educators and Students need to thrive”
As our country continues to face the long standing threat of white-supremacy; educators, parents, and school districts are faced with the systemic racism students of color navigate daily. In California, more than 78,000 Black students are in schools with no Black Educator. This crisis pushed a team of Black Educators in Los Angeles, to collaborate with Innovate Public Schools to launch the Black Educators Advocacy Network. Last year, we listened to learn how schools can better support Black Educators and Students from administrators and educators. Our findings are summarized in a data brief we call, Seen and Affirmed: “What Black Educators and Students need to thrive.”
