The COVID-19 pandemic will change all our lives in ways we are unable to imagine. But we cannot sit and wring our hands. We must plan, prepare, and mobilize to advocate for what we know students and educators need— especially by focusing on the deep negative impacts for students based on race and those experiencing deep poverty or living in rural, isolated communities. NEA members are coming together with families and communities to demand that Congress:
- Stabilize education funding for students in our community schools, and campuses.
- Build bridges for educational opportunity for students and stronger communities.
- Support the safety, health, and well-being of students and educators.
Here is what you can do to help students, educators, and communities so that we all rise together out of the COVID-19 crisis.
