Our Voices Matter

We are the students, parents, educators, and community leaders who believe kids deserve access to a high-quality public education. We will not be ignored by politicians who claim to know better than we do about what’s best for our children and communities. We will not stand by while they threaten to shut down schools, cut off funding, and deny millions of children the opportunity to attend a high-achieving public school. Charters work. The status quo doesn't.

    The NAACP started this moratorium business and the candidates may see them as the voice of black America, but they are not.

    I can’t support anyone trying to cut off funding for schools like mine. I see nothing but harm coming from that.

    I have both my kids in charter schools. This feels like a personal attack on my family. We want the best for our kids and, honestly, the traditional public schools around us are failing.

    Their school helps them to become the person they want to be and to fulfill their purpose in life. Kids and families should have a say in that.

    Go and talk to people. Don’t just talk to the people who can fill your campaign funds. Talk to the people who can’t donate to your campaign. Talk to people who need things to change. We need things to change. And guess what, I have a right to vote.

Show Them Charter School Supporters are Powerful

We are a diverse group. We are Black. We are Latino. We are youth advocates. We are suburban moms. We are Democrats. We are Republicans. Some of us are even union members. The one thing we all have in common is that we support charter schools. We will not let other people define us, ignore us, or mischaracterize our work. We can't let anyone snub charter schools or take away opportunities from our children. Let’s let everyone know we will not stand for it. To raise your voice, why not send a social message telling everyone that you support charter schools?

#Charterswork

More than 50 Charter Management Organizations released a letter in response to the draft platform recommendation from the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force. Leaders of these networks found the task force's recommendations for public education, especially as they relate to charter schools, to be disappointing, harmful, and misleading.
