Educating with Equity

Every student has the right to an honest and culturally inclusive education.
All children deserve well-trained and supported educators and curriculum to help them fully understand our past and shape our future. Together, we can make that happen.
No matter our color, background, or ZIP code, we want our kids to have an education that imparts honesty about who we are, integrity in how we treat others, and courage to do what’s right. We also want educators to feel supported when teaching these important lessons.

Public Attack Response Team

Your union can support you if you have been targeted by the public for teaching to or advancing state- or district-required equity standards.

Toolkits and Resources

Ending racism, sexism, homophobia, and other systemic injustices in schools is critical to protecting the human and civil rights of all students.

Every Oregon student deserves a school where they feel safe and seen. I’m proud of the work OEA members do every day to make sure students and educators have the funding and support they need to thrive.
