Everyone deserves a good, fair, education. Public schools are the heart of our communities and working-class families across race rely on them to help educate and grow our children. However, some politicians and far-right extremists want to tear down public education in North Carolina and replace it with for-profit models. That’s why we are organizing.
As a part of Heal Together NC, we are building Public School Strong (PSS) teams all across the state. PSS teams show up and support public education in their counties, fighting for full funding of our public schools, and endorsing candidates who will too.
Our goals include:
Parents and educators all across the state are organzing as Public School Strong. Public School Strong teams go to their local school board meetings to check in on whats happening and to speak out for public ed! If you want to build a local Public School Strong team in your school district, or plug into one already forming, join us!
Down Home NC has joined forces with the Education Justice Alliance (EJA) to create H.E.A.L. (Honest Education Action & Leadership) Together NC, part of a national initiative from Race Forward that is building a movement of students, educators, and parents in school districts across the United States.
If you are looking to plug in and learn more about the issues facing public education, our schools, our teachers, and our students then join us for the next H.E.A.L Together NC Statewide Call!
Come on in, y’all. We’ve got work to do.
