• Join Us:
  • Education Advocacy Day & Rally

    All students in New York have the right to a high quality education.

    All kids should have:

    • access to music, arts and sports
    • updated and culturally relevant textbooks and current technology
    • small class sizes

    But not all students have these things — especially Black, Brown and low income students.

    Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature must work to end racial and economic inequity in education. Join us on January 9 in Albany to demand our elected officials fund the billions they owe our public school students.

    Transportation to Albany and lunch will be provided.
