Priorities

EDUCATION EQUITY -- The current educational system has been responsible for cultural and educational erasure, dehumanization, and eradication of Black and Brown communities and has acted as a direct pipeline to the criminal justice system.

Reparations --

  1. Defense and improvement of affirmative action policies (for access to higher education)

  2. Free, quality education for all

  3. Public resources for non-traditional, justice-oriented educational programming hosted by community groups and organizations

Current Systemic Inequity --

  1. Equitable school funding

  2. Non-oppressive and inclusive curriculum that prepare all students to dismantle systems of oppression

  3. Eliminate standardized tests

  4. Mandatory anti-racism training for teachers, faculty, and staff

  5. Increase access and incentivize teaching opportunities for educators of color

  6. Free higher education for all

New Systems and Institutions --

  1. Creation and maintenance of holistic freedom schools that are rooted in community-oriented, culturally-relevant values and priorities
