In 2022, six trailblazing charter school communities united to uplift family voice and ensure charter families have a seat at decision-making tables.

We believe that charter schools must deeply invest in relationships with one another and among its school communities to intentionally build collective power.

We focus on cultivating family voice – the most important lever for change.
