UPCOMING EVENT: SEpt. 19 | Harlem

Calling all students, parents, educators, politicians, community leaders, and educational justice seekers:

After being featured in the New York Times for its April kick-off event, we are fired up for another unforgettable night of student-led dialogue about educational inequity. This time, school officials and candidates for elected office will be joining the students on stage for a one-of-a-kind conversation about the most pressing issues in the New York City public school system. 

We will announce more details and a guest list closer to the day of the event. For now, reserve your ticket and save the date on your calendars. You don't want to miss it.
