for equity and opportunity in public education

We work to unite a growing coalition of advocates and organizers from across the country working to ensure that all students have access to a high quality public education.

The OTL Network includes local, state and national organizations, grassroots community leaders, policymakers, youth organizers, business leaders and philanthropic partners.
