EmpowerED Families has been all over Indianapolis engaging in numerous education advocacy efforts. We work to build a movement of families of color and allies to fight for equitable education practices and policies that leads to greater social and economic opportunities for students in Indianapolis.

We believe that if we build a base of families, build community leaders, elevate issues of education equity through family stories and experience, and run campaigns on issues most critical to families, then we will achieve our intended impact.

  • We work to build a base of members and supporters.
  • We conduct relational 1:1 meetings to connect with potential members and identify parent leaders.
  • We help build the capacity of those leaders.
  • We conduct Parent Connection meetings to identify key issues facing parents and families.
  • We conduct external/public actions.
  • We run campaigns to achieve concrete education policy wins.
