LEE members like Arlene and Tolu are making an impact in their communities beyond the classroom. Organizers work alongside communities to identify crucial issues, bring people together, and demand change for the policies that perpetuate inequity.
Organizing can be as local as working with students and parents to fight for more equitable policies in their school district, and as large-scale as reforming federal protections for students with disabilities. When communities are organized, each child has a powerful organized base at their back continuously working toward educational equity.
How would you like to make change in your community?
In the past year, LEE has helped countless members — just like yourself — translate their skills and experience in the classroom into real impact for students and families. For some, that means career coaching and support, for others — resume review or making connections with a local organization’s hiring team.
To get started — tell us a little bit about yourself and what you’re interested in and we’ll help guide you through the next steps to find a role that could help you make a huge impact for students and families.
