Teachers Unite creates tools to support school-site organizing & influence citywide change.

Since our formation, intergenerational teams of educators, students, and families have come together to dream up research, narrative, and curriculum development projects that advance the education justice movement. Together, school community members have worked on participatory action research, contributed to collective political education, and much more. Check out some of our foundational resources below.

School-Site Organizing Toolkit:

The culmination of 100+ peer-to-peer conversations and interviews, Teachers Unite has synthesized advice and strategies from school community members who have worked together to change their school cultures.

To engage with this tool as designed, come to an upcoming cohort meeting in your borough.
