Equity is about ensuring every child, no matter what neighborhood they live in, has the opportunity for a brilliant future. It's important for all schools to get the resources, support, and opportunities for every child to succeed. When a child doesn't have access to these opportunities, it hurts our community.

Equity across our public schools requires empathy and action. It demands honesty, commitment, and perseverance from everyone in our diverse community. Join us to create a shared vision for success for all children, our schools, and our community.

This workshop includes dialogue and creative expression opportunities, review of case studies to better understand educational equity issues, and provides you with tools to take action for our community and schools.

UnifiEd is here to support you to affect the change you want to see in public education, and our trainings and workshops give you the skills and tools to organize within your network and neighborhood.
