Equity Work

Championing for Racial Equity in Our Schools

Our fight to ban the Confederate flag in Orange County schools exposed an underbelly of racial intolerance in the district. We realized the fight would not end once a ban was achieved. Another major aspect of our work is empowering communities to fight racial inequities in their local schools.


The Data

The following is a list of data sources we use to guide out work in the Orange County school district.

This is an interactive database based on civil rights data released by the U.S. Department of Education which examines racial disparities in educational opportunities and school discipline.
