WE’RE DEMANDING CHANGE ACROSS THE COUNTRY

Students of color across the country are coming together to reimagine education and break away from one-size-fits-all thinking. They identified five demands for public schools, and it's time for politicians to commit to a pro-student, pro-equity agenda. Tell Joe Biden that he should adopt these five demands to ensure opportunity and the economic future we deserve.

Fully and Equitably Fund All Public Schools

Systematic racism has its toxic roots in all aspects of our government, nowhere is it more transparent than in the shameful underfunding of our Black, Brown, and Indigenous Schools.

Ground Our Schools in Anti-Racism and Facts

We are on the precipice of a new Dark-ages, where facts are misconstrued, erased and denied. Not until we know and understand our full history will we have a society of critical thinkers who will carry the Country beyond its current limitations.

Dismantle the School to Prison Pipeline

We need to make schools an incubator for cognitive and socio-emotional development, not breeding grounds for prisons.

Every Child Deserves Economic Dignity

Economic dignity comes in the form of direct access to the middle class. The destructive cycle of poverty can be broken with a college degree or a union job. Schools must prepare every child, regardless of ESL status or disability, to thrive and complete college and or trade school.

Support the Whole Child

Creating a more equitable world begins with recognizing that young people need to be cared for holistically. Young people will achieve their full potential when they are supported emotionally, physically and cognitively.
