Education Justice

Communities of color are too often denied access to quality public education that is accountable to their communities, and as a result attend schools that are underfunded, under-resourced, and often subject to closure or corporate takeover. Advancement Project and our partners are leading the way in supporting the strengthening of public schools and opposing corporate takeover of public education. Our Quality Education for All campaign works with partners, allies and policymakers to secure equitable, high-quality public schools for all children.
We will win with supporters like you, Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation & Jack Dorsey of Twitter’s #startsmall
