As the pandemic turned many of our lives upside down, we also saw communities around the world standing up and organizing to protect the future of their children.
Join us on December 2nd Thursday to learn from #ALasAulas and Padres Organizados, movements led by parents and families to reopen schools safely in Argentina and Mexico!
Launched in mid-2020, Padres Organizados was founded as a network led by mothers and fathers who mobilized in Argentina to reopen schools. In December 2020, #AlasAulas campaign brought 200 organizations together and mobilized more than 200,000 parents to ask for the re-opening of schools. Earlier this year, the movement was successful in achieving the opening of schools! Inspired by the success in Argentina, #AlasAulas Mexico was launched.
In the event, we will share the challenges, successes, and lessons around organizing and building power through these campaigns.
