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.
Collaboration and Consulting
EJ-ROC brings together a collective of skilled community organizers and researchers who have expertise in supporting organizing groups through coaching and trainings.
Educational Organizing Resources
Anti-Racist Coalition Building
Grounded in an intersectional anti-racist framework, i3 partners with stakeholders across schools and communities seeking to design student-centered anti-racist school policy and community practices.
A new EJ-ROC initiative, From Integration to Anti-Racism: How We Show Up As White Parents, provides anti-racist training, coaching, book circles, tools, and skill-building to white parents to help them understand the destructive beliefs and patterns of internalized white supremacy.
