Closing Parent Power 2021 is an invitation-only event that brings together hundreds of the nation’s top parent advocates, activists, and agitators who pledge to place our children at the center of the national education conversation. By working together to battle the status quo, we can provide our kids the life they deserve.
The National Parents Union reaches more than 15 million families and during the pandemic has helped them find the necessary resources to educate and to care for their children. Together we can continue the movement to build change needed in national education policy conversations.
