Community


We supported a local parent and community information event with members of The Memphis Lift, a grassroots parent engagement and advocacy group. This event was designed to help Atlanta parents and community members learn about engagement and advocacy efforts that are having impact in other cities.

 


We are supporting GeorgiaCAN in its efforts to identify, advocate for and advance common-sense policies that put the needs of students first.

 


We are supporting Better Outcomes for Our Kids (BOOK) in its efforts to raise awareness for high-performing schools in African American communities within Atlanta, and its efforts to expand and increase awareness of educational options and school choice within the city.
