- Analyze data to see how children of color, children with disabilities, and children impacted by the child welfare and juvenile legal system are disproportionately over- and under-represented in our child welfare, school discipline, and special education systems
- Utilize anti-racist advocacy techniques to effectively represent children in our education system.
