Creating Safe Schools
When police and immigration authorities aggressively pursue enforcement activities on or around school property, they interfere with all students' ability to learn.
EMPOWERING SCHOOL COMMUNITIES
We need to make sure student, educator, and family voices are centered to create welcoming and affirming schools regardless of race, gender, background, or zip code.
We should not punish children for decisions they didn’t make. We should not separate families. We should provide a trusted path to citizenship for immigrant Dreamers.
Including Ethnic Studies
Students and educators are mobilizing to include voices and stories of the diverse ethnicities that have contributed to the history and culture of the United States.

Native American and Alaskan Native mascots and team names have a negative impact on students' learning environments.
