Why is our public school system not serving all students – of all races, backgrounds, and zip codes – in an equitable way, and what can we do about it? Why are families competing to get into a few desirable schools, when every public school should be great? Join us to learn from experts, share your knowledge, and build our power to win the public schools that all students deserve.

The childcare services for this event are full.
