About Us

Through youth-led organizing, Students for Educational Justice (SEJ) drives racial and educational justice and cultivates self-pride in young BIPOC (Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color). We envision a just education system and an equitable society in which all people understand the history of race in the United States, and are actively committed to dismantling systemic racism and other forms of oppression. 

Since 2017, SEJ has challenged the oppressive systems under which our society operates. We envision a country in which the histories of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) are taught, understood, and recognized as fundamental to American history and where people feel affirmed in their identities. We consider “youth” and “young people” to mean high school-aged students and recent high school graduates. SEJ hosts political education and organizing- related trainings for new and experienced student organizers about institutional racism, adultism, anti-Blackness, and other oppressive systems, as well as practices such as one-on-one meetings.
