The National Coalition on School Diversity (NCSD) is a network of national civil rights organizations, university-based research centers, and state and local coalitions working to expand support for government policies that promote school diversity and reduce racial and economic isolation in elementary and secondary schools. We also support the work of state and local school diversity practitioners. Our work is informed by an advisory panel of scholars and academic researchers whose work relates to issues of equity, diversity, and desegregation/integration.

Learn Together, Live Together (LTLT) is a diverse, bipartisan coalition of youth, young adults, and parents passionate about promoting, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity in schools. LTLT envisions a world where all children have access to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning environments that will allow them to flourish academically, socially, and as adults in an increasingly diverse world. Our mission is to educate and build public and political will for voluntary efforts that promote school diversity by fostering and framing conversations, identifying and upholding research-supported best practices, and advocating for a wide-range of policies and programs at the national, state, and local levels.

About the conference host: The Center for Education and Civil Rights (based at Penn State's College of Education) is a hub for the generation of knowledge and coalition building within the education and civil rights communities to promote racial and ethnic equality in education. The Center supports democratic values that are central to the mission of public universities. In addition to collaborating with researchers, schools and policymakers, we provide the latest research and general resources to students, parents, and teachers who want to learn more about diversity and why integration in our schools matter.

Great piece from Eric Cooper, President of the New Urban Alliance (NUA), in the Huffington Post.

"When we embrace diversity, when we have high expectations for all learners, when we respect culture and support teachers, when we challenge our assumptions and stride unflinchingly toward equity – that is how we keep our communities – our democracy – strong."
