- Underfunding of education (the impact on our students)
- Diversifying faculty and staff at our institutions and the impact on students
- Including ethnic studies in educational levels K-14
- Presenting all subjects from an ethnically diverse curriculum
- Closing the opportunity gap for students and the de-escalation of police on campuses
- Restorative justice in education
- Addressing intentional racism within the education system.
