About the Speaker

Letha Muhammad is the Director of Education Justice Alliance (EJA), based in Raleigh, North Carolina.  As Director, Letha is working to advance the organizations impact on dismantling the School to Prison to Deportation Pipeline in their local school district, Wake County Public Schools. She believes this will help ensure that Black students and other students of color have access to a quality education. 

Letha believes that one of the most effective ways to dismantle the school to prison pipeline is to work with parents and families that are directly impacted by the issue. As such, her work includes engagement and leadership training with parents, families and community members to ensure they know their rights and how to advocate for themselves and their students. Working with other community stakeholders and organizations to bring awareness to the issue of school pushout is another one of her key roles as director.

Letha represents EJA on the Coordinating Committee of the National Dignity in Schools Campaign and serves as co-chair of their program committee.  She is a wife and the mother of two school age children and one first year college student.
