This four-part training series will include:

o   an overview of our healthy and healing schools platform

o   tips on how to run a campaign (fundraising, voter outreach)

o   the most pressing issues facing school districts today, including mental health, school safety, and ongoing equity challenges with school funding

o   how to inclusively serve diverse student populations.

Please note that this series does not need to be completed sequentially.
