Community Network

The purpose of the Community Network is to advance the goals of the Road Map Project through authentic community action and engagement, and to strengthen public will to improve education results. The committee meets monthly to connect community leaders, advocates, and grassroots-based efforts through providing action-centered advisory to the Road Map Project, including oversight of the Advocates Caucus and being empowered with grant making authority of the Road Map Project Small Grants Fund. The group is composed of grassroots and community-based organizations from throughout the Road Map region.
