Hi. We're

REVOLUTIONIZING EDUCATION BY BRINGING SOCIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE INSIDE THE CLASSROOM. 

START:EMPOWERMENT®

We're a social and environmental justice education project led by 2 womxn of color and a tight-knit team of 8 that help educators translate their aspirations and big goals into actionable plans to radically transform their classroom(s) and curricula.

But that's just the elevator pitch. What we really do fills a whole website.  So click around.

You want to transform your classroom & curricuLA; we have the revolutionary services to help you accomplish all of that and more.

 

Our Guiding values 

 

We take the time to understand the unique challenges each school and district leader faces and then tailor the Start:Empowerment (S:E) approach to satisfy the exact needs of the clients we support.

Our Specialty 

 

We specialize in infusing social and environmental justice themes across subject areas to introduce more diverse content, drive student growth, and generate community impact.

OUR founding

VISION

 

Start:Empowerment is working to create the equitable and sustainable world that we all want to live in.

 

A world where we are intentional about the way we operate and are conscious of the effects our decisions have on our communities. Thus, we aim to also collaborate and consult with activists, educators,  and other local entities via the development of our client projects.  

 

Because, ultimately, we believe that education can be used as a vehicle to break cycles of injustice.

START:EMPOWERMENT has worked with 3 schools and over 200 students to create and implement social and environmental justice education and programming. 

Hire START:EMPOWERMENT to speak at events on the importance of social justice, environmental justice, decolonization, abolition, and more! 

  Community organizing is key to creating change. We support the community by engaging students, supporting existing networks,  advocating for progressive policy, and running a mini-grant program.
