Every year, four million children are born in our country. We know the most important way to nurture and develop the full potential of each of them is through our public investment in education. Now more than ever we need to invest in local advocates who aren’t afraid to stand up for kids. These are the people who build bridges within their communities and make sure the needs of students are front and center in all their work.
As we exit our time as a startup, we are lifting our heads upward to the next challenge on the horizon: building a nationwide network of thousands of citizen advocates who move us closer to the excellent and equitable education systems our kids deserve.
50CAN has drafted a new strategic plan to serve as a roadmap on this journey forward, organized around four big bets to democratize education advocacy itself.
