AMPLIFY is a safe space for educators of color to gather, find connection, and improve equity in our schools.

AMPLIFY seeks to elevate the voices of educators of color to build a community of support! AMPLIFY is open to Central Oregon educators of color and students pursuing a career in education. We are kicking off this project in the 2021-22 school year and will host regular gatherings throughout the region. 

If you’re interested in joining AMPLIFY, please connect with us!
