MISSION

Campaign for School Equity aims to ensure that all children, especially those of color, and families in Tennessee have access to high quality education choices by uniting communities of clergy, parents and students to raise their voices to create effective change.

HISTORY

Born from a national, maternal organization, Campaign for School Equity was founded by passionate Executive Director, Mendell Grinter. With increased demand for school choice initiatives in Memphis and Nashville, the dynamic organization will expand its… programs and offerings in Tennessee. As the CSE emerges, the need for equal school options grows. Until the leaders of our communities unite to create lasting policy change in Tennessee, the challenges for black students to receive quality education will not go away. The longer it takes to resolve; the more children and families are negatively impacted.
