NSEA is committed to deepening educators’ understanding of social justice principles, and how these principles are relevant and useful to their work.
We provide opportunities for members to explore the impact of social justice issues on students and educators, and work to empower educators to apply the principles of social justice when confronted with social oppression.
An education is a civil right, and any child who does not feel safe coming to school is being denied their civil right.
We are working tirelessly to dismantle systems of oppression that prevent children from accessing a great public education because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, culture, or nationality.

EMPOWERED 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.
Supporting LGBTQ Youth
LGTBQ students face unique challenges in our schools. Safe and affirming schools are a core element of student success.
