NEA is pleased to announce a new initiative called the Safe and Just Schools Partnership Funding Program. This program will award funding to state and local NEA affiliates who work to implement projects and partnerships that address systemic inequities and unjust education practices that hinder healthy, safe, and just learning and working environments for students and educators in their schools, campuses and communities.
The funding will range from $3,000 to $75,000 depending on the number of members, students, or community members associated with the application. We are launching an outreach effort to reach membership across the country about this opportunity starting later this week.
We couldn’t be prouder of our Association for tackling racial inequities head-on by making this program a reality. We look forward to seeing the incredible and innovative work of our members. Please share the information about this important new resource far and wide with all your members and staff!
