I am interested in the following committees:



The Education Advocacy Team supports elementary school students in the Ferguson-Florissant School District to address the high level of suspensions of Black children in North County, without having addressed the root cause of why a child is behaving a certain way. Sometimes, a behavior is cultural, which newer and Whiter teachers wouldn’t understand or appreciate.  Also, we try to address the root causes to support students to stay in their classrooms.

Through Education Advocacy, A Red Circle can:
  • employ college students and trainees to support elementary students with resources, tutoring, and mentoring,
  • provide more specialized services from professionals,
  • support parents through the IEP process, and
  • supply families with basic needs.
