Uniting Community Voices in Georgia Policymaking – Podcast Episode 225 | Classnotes Podcast 225
Classnotes Podcast (July 20, 2022). This year was the first time IDRA has had a team in Georgia to lead advocacy in its legislative session. They focused on key issues like school funding, culturally sustaining schooling and LGBTQ civil rights, that impact all Georgia students, but especially students in marginalized spaces.
In this episode, Mikayla Arciaga and Terrence Wilson sat down with Morgan Craven to reflect on the session, including what they learned about state-level education policymaking in Georgia. They described what it is like to be an advocate of color fighting for students of color in this state.
Morgan Craven, J.D., is the IDRA National Director of Policy, Advocacy and Community Engagement, Terrence Wilson, J.D., is the IDRA Director of Regional Policy & Community Engagement, and our Mikayla Arciaga, M.A.Ed., is an IDRA Education Policy Fellow.
