Seeds of Change 2020: April 2nd

RON SABLE AWARD FOR ACTIVISM 

RAISE YOUR HAND FOR ILLINOIS PUBLIC EDUCATION



Raise Your Hand for Illinois Public Education (RYH) engages, informs, and empowers parents to protect and strengthen public education for all children in Chicago and Illinois by eliminating inequities in public schools. Their campaigns include: adequate and equitable school funding, reduction of standardized testing, democratic and transparent public school governance, a moratorium on school privatization, appropriate special education services for students, and safeguards for student data privacy. RYH is part of a coalition that is challenging the City of Chicago for its use of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) subsidies to luxury real estate developers at the detriment of local public schools.

Tune in to our Facebook page for a Facebook Watch Party today, Thursday, April 2, at 10am, as we honor the bold leadership of Raise Your Hand for Illinois Public Education with the Ron Sable Award for Activism.

Help us meet our goal of raising $150,000 to support movement work in Chicago. We are over 75% of our fundraising goal!
