Ecosystem Development

Bringing educators together in the name of quality

Educational redlining has plagued Oakland for decades, resulting in inequitable access to quality schools. FIA builds coalitions with community organizations, elected leaders, faith organizations and advocacy partners to create synergy and impact. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
