Learning for Justice

We are a small team of educators and writers working in Montgomery, Alabama—the birthplace of the civil rights movement. We’re driven by a passion for social justice, a deep belief that education is the best chance we have to build a better world, and a firm commitment to making sure that every student has the opportunity to learn and thrive.
