Upcoming Events

Join us for a free interactive webinar on Thursday, August 20. Researchers, parent leaders, educators, and district staff will discuss how to center family voices during this pivotal time of COVID-19 and racial reckoning.

  1. What does equitable partnership with families look like in schools, districts, and community-based organizations, and how does it make a difference for children and young people?
  2. How can families be at the center of driving a more anti-racist educational system?
  3. What are concrete strategies for developing trust between families and educators, shifting power to families, and supporting parents as leaders?
