Educators for Justice

Thank you to all our fellow educators, parents and community advocates who have accepted the invitation to join us as we embark on a life changing journey. Currently our “normal” way of life has been uprooted and we now face new and unprecedented opportunities to fight the systemic racism and injustices that have continued to prevail  in our urban communities and communities of color. As educators and front-line workers we have the responsibility to not just teach our scholars academic materials, but to encourage and push them to be socially aware and responsible with their voice and influence.

This week the #Educators4Justice movement has been launched, and together we desire to be examples to all of the students we teach or have taught to use their voices by standing against the injustices in our society. The purpose of this movement  is to gather educators, parents and community leaders from all social, racial and economic backgrounds to stand together against the injustices that we have been experiencing in our communities. Our goal is to bring awareness to the fact that educators are front line workers who are responsible for developing and shaping the next generation. We believe that our responsibility to our community is not just to academically and intellectually develop our students, but to instill core values and encourage them to use their voices and social influence to affect change in the greater society.

All contributions to Educators for Justice will be used for establishing Educators For Justice as an official non-profit organization. As well as develop a strategic team of organizers in urban cities to specifically mobilize educators in the fight for justice.
