Leveraging Grassroots Advocacy for Education Equity: A discussion on education justice organizing in Massachusetts
Associated Grant Makers, 133 Federal Street, Suite 802, Boston, MA
Consultant, Grantmaker, Philanthropic Advisor
With the Massachusetts state election behind us and a new year before us, the Schott Foundation sees a unique opportunity to bring together diverse philanthropic organizations invested in children, youth, education and social justice to build connections and bridges with education justice advocates who are seeking to advance education equity in Massachusetts.
We will hear from advocates representing students, community and labor groups about their efforts to build local and state-wide alliances for public education that are driven by community voice. They will share key learnings from their grassroots organizing efforts to defeat the Question 2 ballot initiative and discuss what’s next in their work to ensure that every child in Massachusetts has an opportunity to learn.
Jessica Tang, Director of Organizing, Boston Teacher’s Union

Russ Davis, Executive Director, Massachusetts Jobs With Justice
Natalia Berthert, Organizer, Massachusetts Jobs With Justice
Moderated by: Marianna Islam, Director of Programs and Advocacy, Schott Foundation
