COVID-19 has exposed the many inequalities
In our country. Our failing education system was never designed for us, and has worked against us for far too long.
But where there is challenge, there is opportunity.
As education leaders restructure systems during COVID-19, we will make sure justice for BIPOC students is a part of that conversation. When governments make plans, we will rise up for the future we demand.
We are a coalition of students and activists.
We are not raising our hands for permission,
We’re raising our hands to demand change.
We are raising the issue of unjust power dynamics
to hold decision makers accountable.
We are raising the standards of our schools
to end oppressive education policies.
We are raising the voices of students like us
who speak truth to power and are leading the charge.
It’s time each of us receive the education we deserve.
