Join the Fight for Education Justice in Kent County

Public schools continue to be the battleground for our communities' future. We believe that children deserve liberating and humanizing school experiences, and we have the power to demand that it be so!

In order to accomplish this, Urban Core Collective has a two-fold strategy. First, we are working to organize parents, caregivers, students, and education advocates  to hold our public schools accountable to the outcomes we want for the children. Second, we are supporting progressive school board candidates by giving them the resources and information they need to advocate for our communities.

As a community, we have a clear vision for how our public schools can improve. Students deserve to eat healthy and delicious food. Parents deserve dependable transportation services for their children. Bus drivers deserve affordable healthcare. Teachers and school staff deserve thriving working conditions, and classrooms and cafeterias with clean air. Our communities deserve redress from years of systemic divestment and neglect. Grand Rapids’ neighborhoods are filled with an abundance of talent, we need safe and nurturing places for our talents to flourish.

If you are interested in participating in this movement, fill out this form and we will follow back up with you to help you find your place. We look forward to fighting alongside you!
