At PAVE, our mission, vision, values, and work align around a single principle: our city is stronger when communities, schools, kids, and families make their voices heard in our education system.

 

To create great schools in every Ward and community in DC, we convene a network of over 1,700 parent leaders from across the city to amplify the voices that represent the diverse needs, interests, and perspectives of our families and communities.

We believe that ALL parents, regardless of their Ward, community, socioeconomic status, and/or educational background, when given the space, access, and tools, can be great parent leaders for their children and ALL children.

We know our model works. In two short years, through our network’s advocacy efforts, we’ve quadrupled funding for out-of-school-time programs, assisted city leaders to develop a parent- and community-centered school report card, and secured historic increases in per pupil and facilities funding for DC’s traditional public and public charter schools, proving what’s possible when parents pave the way for responsive education policymaking.

To build on the incredible momentum of the previous two years, we’ve outlined an ambitious $2 million Parent Power Campaign to further expand PAVE’s parent organizing and engagement work serving families and kids in our nation’s capital.

 

To cap off our campaign, we invite you to join us for our inaugural PAVE Parent Power Gala at one of DC’s hottest new venues:

District Winery (385 Water St SW)

Monday, December 3rd

7:30-9:30pm with a Sponsor Reception from 6:30-7:30pm.

Join us and help us build Parent Power in our city!
