#INTEGRATENOW

We are calling on Mayor de Blasio to integrate New York City high schools.

 

SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER

TTC leader Sokhnadiarra Ndiaye and student leaders from Integrate NYC and ASAP testify on May 1 at the City Council hearing on school segregation.

Teens Take Charge leaders Sophie Mode and Tiffani Torres examine school segregation today at The Atlantic’s 2019 Education Summit.

 
 

 

Teens Take Charge DEVELOPS CIVIC LEADERS WHO SHIFT POWER IN THE EDUCATION SYSTEM TO STUDENTS. 

 

Too often, decisions about our schools are made without our voices. No longer. Our growing coalition of high school students from across the five boroughs will not rest until our public school system lives up to its promise of providing us an equitable education.

Through oral & written testimony, discussions with policymakers, and targeted advocacy campaigns, we — the students of New York City — are taking our schools & futures into our hands.
