TAKE ACTION & LEARN MORE

It’s time to end education inequity! Students across New York State are undereducated, miseducated and trapped in failing school systems. Overwhelmingly, these systems fail to serve Black, Hispanic/Latinx and poor students whose outcomes are devastatingly low. This is a crisis! Every child deserves access to a good education and quality schools. Be an equity warrior. Stand up for education equity. Join the fight for education equity and civil rights!

Sign on to the education equity and civil rights 9-point platform letter by clicking below. Tell legislators you want them to stand up for education equity and civil rights!

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

School districts are required to consult with communities to develop a plan for spending billions in federal school aid provided through the American Rescue Plan (ARP).  Funding should be used to make the necessary changes so that all students can reach their full potential! School budget votes are scheduled for May to review and respond to ARP plan proposals.  Attend the meetings listed below to review ARP plans and school budgets.  Get involved and make your voice heard!
