By advocating for culturally competent educational practices.

 Our Mission 

Our mission is to challenge systems of oppression by advocating for culturally competent educational practices in Waterbury.

We believe the most effective way to triumph over systemic forms of oppression is to have an educational system that serves the historically underserved and underrepresented. 


We advocate for an educational system that is positioned to provide culturally competent school professionals and curriculum, human services, and disciplinary policies, which combat: generational poverty, achievement gaps, implicit and explicit biases towards race, ethnicity and gender.
