    Fall Events & Engagement

    We know that there are many visions for Detroit schools, but how many of these visions are centered on what Detroiters want and need? As we continue seeing developments downtown at the same time as our schools are crumbling and students struggle to thrive post-graduation. If we want to see real results, we have to put in the real work to show decision-makers that we aren’t playing around–we will hold them accountable to their campaign promises!

    Students, parents, and educators are the real experts, and we need to TIP THE SCALES to show those in power that there are at least 1000 Detroiters centered around one vision for our schools, our city and our future. Register here to be part of the 1000 invested in education justice in Detroit schools!

    Register here to host a house meeting, and we can support you with a house meeting training in your community if needed!
