MISSION

To ensure that all children in California have access to high-quality public education by promoting community engagement and raising awareness among public education stakeholders about public education policy, equity, and related issues.

The Foundation will carry out its mission in conjunction with Speak UP, a California nonprofit organization with purposes similar to those of the Foundation.

In furtherance of its mission, the Foundation supports charitable and educational programs and activities conducted by Speak UP and other organizations that provide California’s public school parents and other stakeholders with the tools and information they need to engage on issues of educational equity and excellence. By promoting these activities, the Speak UP Foundation will help ensure that all California public school children have an equal opportunity to receive outstanding educations.
