The Education Justice Research and Organizing Collaborative (EJ-ROC) brings together researchers, data and policy analysts, and community organizers to provide critical research, data, policy, and strategic support for the education justice movement. Through our services, EJ-ROC aims to democratize education data, research and policy, maximize the synergy between research and community organizing, magnify the voices of grassroots communities of color, and advance the capacity of organizing efforts to design solutions, make demands, and sustain policy wins. 

New Organizing Toolkit (April 2022)

We have released an Organizing Toolkit for Strong Schools and Multiracial Democracy that includes messaging guidance, organizing tools, and a Policy Drive that includes one-pagers and accessible policy resources on key policy topics, as well as sample school board resolutionsstate legislation, and demographic analyses of top English Language Arts curricula nationally. Please use, share, and let us know if you have additional resources that should be included.
