Our Vision

We are transforming our public school system into one that is governed by democratic control, and where our schools are grounded in values of racial and economic justice, restorative justice, and equity.

Who We Are

We organize because NYC students must have more from schools. We mobilize because educators are vital allies to students in this movement.

"Teachers Unite helps me to think through how to critically, responsibly, and sustainably play the roles of teacher, facilitator, theorist, and agent of political change."

Sarah Camiscoli|TU Member

“We want to help schools teach students how to relate to others even in times of fear, crisis or conflict, so that they are prepared to handle conflict and difficulty when they grow up”

Teachers Unite Member Handbook|2014

"My work with Teachers Unite keeps me motivated. Having a community dedicated to putting students first, challenging inequities in the systems, and fighting to change those systems, makes my everyday struggles a little easier."
