• Where We Started. Where We’re Going.

    In June 2020, our organization took a hard look at itself and paused to absorb our true impact: we have not done enough as individuals, as an organization, and through our work to deliver on our vision for equity for all students. This reflection provided a catalyst for us to critically examine the possibilities of the work we do and to seek opportunities that best support teachers and students who are profoundly affected by the inequities in our educational system.

    It is with these reflections in mind that we commit daily to ensuring that we are centering the voices, experiences, and work of people of color in every single action we take to make education as equitable as possible. To learn more about the ongoing evolution of our organization, explore the resources in the table below.
