Liberation starts in schools.

Cultivating brave spaces. Building just schools.


Liberation starts in schools when strong, sustained engagement and collaboration is the prerequisite. 

For schools to be places where every young person is valued, where their creative genius is celebrated, and where they are prepared for success in life, school communities must first build the mindsets, skills, and collective energy needed to make their schools more equitable and just.

We’ve learned that when school communities invest in strong, sustained engagement and share both voice and power, they can begin to deliver on the promise of what learning can be. But, of course, there is more work to be done. That’s why we are expanding our impact over the next five years by deepening our work in DC, serving more communities nationally, and launching an alumni network.
