The work of growing children and schools and our beautiful city is complex and deep and filled with possibility.  We were so present to that last night at Ignite Education.  Our speakers and all who attended contributed to a night of connecting, thinking, and appreciation for this hard work that we all love and strive to do as best we can together.

What a great night of inspiration!  The evening was filled with innovative ideas, calls to action, laughter, and even some tears. We thank everyone for being willing to share their passion for Education and Justice. Thanks to everyone who came out to support our speakers.
