Driving a shared vision for fully-funded, safe, and affirming schools.
PEER convened in Memphis for conversations that grounded education equity in the civil rights movement. We heard from state coalitions leading campaigns for fully funded, safe, and affirming public schools. Our members also met with state legislators from TN and NE and traveled to Earle, Arkansas to hear from Mayor Jaylen Smith and community leaders about the vision for public schools as cornerstones for rural communities.

Education advocates united in Durham to discuss the Leandro v. State of North Carolina litigation and its effect on education funding and the power of youth in the fight for equitable public systems. PEER also met with leaders and founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee to discuss how to include voices that have consistently been left out of education conversations.
