“After participating in this fellowship, I am truly invigorated in this work and am determined to move forward in pursuing a role in policy that will impact students with disabilities. This shift in my vision came from my experience in the fellowship.”
"I see what I do as part of a movement to shift the former mode of education reform by empowering those who work on the front lines and engaging diverse stakeholders in a way that transforms hearts and minds for the betterment of students."
“I initially thought that the workshop was going to help me learn how to advocate for policy changes I wanted to see at my school. I was really surprised when we were coached through the organizing cycle.”
"I’m in this fellowship because I believe good policies create an equitable future for all students. And I want to be that policymaker."
"As much as I care about and am personally invested in ending educational inequity, I know that I can never care more than the parents and students themselves."
"It wasn’t until I began mentoring a middle school student in Tucson that I recognized the difference that existed between her school and my school, simply because of the zip code. It infuriated me!"
