FREEDOM TO LEARN

Padres & Jóvenes Unidos is a multi-issue organization led by people of color who work for educational equity, racial justice, immigrant rights and advocating for equal access to achieve a better quality of life. Our Freedom to Learn framework is based on the belief that education is a right, not a privilege. We believe that all students, regardless of race, income, or immigration status, deserve equal access to high-quality public schools that prepare them for college. Click to learn more about us.

Member Voices

I joined Padres & Jóvenes Unidos because they empower me with the tools I need to be a leader in my community- to know and better understand my rights so that I can defend, support, and stand by my daughter.

Nidia Ruiz, PJU Parent Member

I knew there was an issue and that I wanted to do something, but I didn't until I go involved with Padres & Jóvenes Unidos. Being here is amazing because it's like a family.

Arianna Perea, PJU Youth Leader

Being a youth member of Padres & Jóvenes Unidos has taught me that things will not change if you do not speak up and take action. As a student and a person, I have more confidence and understand the importance of working with my peers towards a common goal.
