Parent and Community Organizing Grant

This initiative has the immediate goal of developing a longer-term plan for enhancing and supporting the capacities of parent and community advocacy organizations in Atlanta, GA to address education policy and reform issues.  This planning initiative will support a series of analysis and engagement activities in the metropolitan area of Atlanta GA.   

The project objectives include: 

  • Conducting a needs assessment/landscape analysis of local advocacy groups 
  • Curating an updated repository of core local education policy issues inclusive of interviews with leaders in the education, policy, and advocacy domains; 
  • Determining an Atlanta hybrid organizing engagement model and framework that is driven by local organizers.


Impact Statement: The overarching goal of the planning period is to surface a multi-year strategy for increased educational achievement and success through education advocacy, a plan that is developed collaboratively with the organizations most directly engaged in this body of work.
