Speak Up for Students Our Voice Is Our Power

We’ll advocate for fully-funded public schools. We’ll dismantle unjust systems. We’ll give our students the opportunities they need to succeed. Help us make it happen.

Now is not the time to be silent. We are stronger together. The more voices we have working together, the louder we will be.
