Over the next year, the Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed) and our partners are conducting an equity campaign to honor the 65th anniversary of the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision. The campaign, created to ensure that the spotlight on this landmark case doesn’t dim until the next anniversary, will shine a light on the continuing needs of students—no matter their race, zip code, or background.
Watch the campaign kickoff video from All4Ed President Deb Delisle.
A Challenge for Every Month
Every month we’ll share an issue and supplemental materials related to the unfulfilled promise of the landmark case.
Sixty-five years after Brown, are you frustrated? Are you hopeful? You’re not alone. Hear from others like you in our series of #OurChallengeOurHope video reflections.
