Public Education ● We recognize that racism and white supremacy culture are embedded in public education and harmfully impacting students, teachers, and parents/guardians. We are accountable for taking action to support people of color-led groups working to create a more equitable and just education system for all students in Boston (and the surrounding area).  Our goals are to increase civic engagement of white people for racial justice in our school system, activate teachers to be racial justice advocates in their schools, and support/provide resources for existing POC organizations and parents in our schools.
