Every week, our staff sends each other news articles, videos, and resource lists that we find interesting, compelling, or important. We'd like to broaden our conversation and invite you to join us as we share, learn, and grow together. We hope you'll find use in some of the content we share, and we would love to know what you're reading too.

If you'd like to share something with our team, please comment below or email us at and we'll send it around to our staff. Thank you for being a part of our conversation and for joining us as we stand up for students together
