About Us

Bay Area Parent Leadership Action Network (PLAN) is an Oakland based organization that develops the leadership and builds the power of parents to transform schools so that all students achieve their student success.

We train parents and families to believe that their voices matter, while we develop their skills and knowledge that will strengthen their capacity to advocate for their children. We build strong school-based partnerships among families, teachers, staff and principals using Transformative Family Engagement (TFE) practices that transform schools. We organize a network of parents from different cultures who support each other, create a shared analysis of institutional racism's impact on students of color, and an understanding of the need for systemic change. We develop parent leaders who build a membership and support base of families, teachers, staff, and principals to organize campaigns that promote change- in values, practices, system design and resources.
