Community engagement efforts at St. Marcus seek to mobilize parents to lead as advocates for access to high-quality schools for all children and families in the city of Milwaukee.

How are we making this happen?

  1. Educating ourselves on the issues to advocate for Milwaukee’s children.
  2. Fighting for the expansion of high-quality schools for ALL children in Milwaukee.
  3. Identifying people that want to get involved and training them as leaders.
  4. Planning events or connecting to existing events to connect, plan and act together.
  5. Connecting with local schools, churches and other religious organizations.
  6. Identifying and meeting with community organizing groups for partnership opportunities.  
  7. Defining and implementing communication pathways to stay connected and drive momentum.

SCHOOL PARENTS are training to work with a core team of parents from their own neighborhood to advocate for high-quality education, safety, and resources for parents and children.
