Mission Statement

SARN develops campaigns and projects in the South to end racial disparities in criminal justice, economic opportunities, education, environment/housing and health care.We’re a network of activists who cross the lines of race, gender, class, age and immigration status to challenge divisions in the movement to end white supremacy.

Building a Village

We are building a village to support high academic achievement and positive behavior for all students in Muscogee County, Georgia. We are parents, students, educators, community activists, people in business and people of faith who believe it takes a village to raise a child.

Strategic Priorities

Parent Participation and Support
High Expectations for All Students
Academic and Social Support Services
Early Childhood Learning Opportunities
Teacher Quality, Retention, and Support

Ending School-to-Prison Pipeline

High suspension rates of African American and disabled students, the education achievement gap and the growing prison population are inextricably linked. Community education about this social concern is necessary to end the school-to-prison pipeline.
