June 19th Webinar: Where Do You Fit In the National Movement for Equity?


Where Do You Fit in the National Movement for Equity?
Join us on June 19th at 2 p.m. EST for a free webinar!

By now you've likely heard of the Federal Equity and Excellence Commission and its bold report, For Each and Every Child, that calls for a new direction in education policy focused on equity and opportunity. The report touches on everything from fair funding and wraparound supports for kids to early education and well-prepared and effective teachers. But how do you package all that together to build a movement and organize for change in your community?

On June 19th at 2 p.m. EST, the OTL Campaign is hosting a free webinar to answer exactly that question. We'll be talking with:

  • David Sciarra, Executive Director, Education Law Center; Commissioner, Equity and Excellence Commission
  • Ocynthia Williams, Parent Organizer with the Coalition for Educational Justice, New York
  • Rich Huddleston, Executive Director, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families

David Sciarra will offer an overview of the various issues raised in the report and how they connect into a new strategy for education reform. Ocynthia Williams and Rich Huddleston have played vital roles in helping build successful, multi-issue campaigns in their state, and they'll share the victories and challenges they've had along the way.

Please sign up and we'll see you on June 19th!
And don't forget to invite your friends and colleagues on Facebook and Twitter.

P.S. We just released an "Education Declaration to Rebuild America" that outlines a new direction for education policy based on supports for students, teachers and schools.
