Womxn of Color in Education is a committee of diverse, passionate womxn of color deeply embedded in and committed to improving education policy and politics in Washington State. We bring expertise from across the education pipeline from early learning to higher education, from policy and advocacy to building-level leadership and teaching. We share the belief that shifting power to people of color is essential to improving educational systems to ensure all kids succeed in school and life. We share the understanding that changing systems of power is not a passive endeavor and that power needs to be intentionally cultivated within communities of color.
The WoCE Committee operates under the OneAmerica Votes Justice Fund which works to raise independent money and elect candidates from immigrant and refugee communities and communities of color who share our belief in diversity, democracy and justice. Electing a new generation of leaders who are representative of our communities and share our values is an important piece of the work to achieve our mission to advance the fundamental principles of democracy and justice.
