Public Policy, Advocacy and Legislative Links
We believe that since schools are the first civic institution many young people interact with as stakeholders, they should teach students how to meaningfully engage in the democratic process. Through direct civic action, students should have a more powerful voice to combat educational inequity. We envision an education system where students and adults work as partners to create meaningful change in their schools and communities. Through committed youth-adult partnerships, we cultivate a shared commitment to creating more equitable social outcomes.
