There are plenty of ways for individuals, schools, community groups, and organizations to get engaged with our work to advocate for equity, adequacy, and achievement in Maryland's public schools.

We speak at legislative hearings, work in coalition with allied organizations, give presentations at schools, organize buses to Annapolis, write letters to the editor, lift up community voices on social media, and more. Send an email to if you are interested in getting engaged.
