Our 10th Annual Summer Summit will be held in Madison at La Follette High School.

Join us in Madison to take a stand for welcoming and inclusive public schools that provide equal opportunity for all students. It’s time to come together to demand and deliver the thriving public schools our students and educators deserve! This year’s Summit provides opportunities to put our appreciation and accountability into action as we learn, plan, and strategize around the themes of racial justice, educational equity, and unfair impacts of disinvestment and privatization on students attending Wisconsin public schools.
