WHAT WE DO
We work to raise the political consciousness, voice and power of people to effectively unite with each-other and increase our ability to engage in social and political change for the betterment of ALL people in our community.
In order to be better advocates for our children, we must continue to educate ourselves and understand how systems work. We host various workshops throughout the year to learn and engage with various topics:
Essentials of Local Advocacy
Community Organizing 101
Advocacy & Activism
We, as parents, are our children's most effective advocates. Step Up wants parents to be active advocates for student and parent rights within the education system. We encourage parents to be more involved in decision-making spaces like Board of Ed and City Council meetings. Learn how you can take steps toward advocacy and activism below.
Organizing & Campaigns
Organizing helps us to build a strong base of people to drive our campaigns forward. Together, we can direct our collective power to win improvements in people's lives. We work with our community to address issues and inequities within the education system. Learn about the work we are doing below.
