Following months of deep dialog and a thorough process of information gathering, NPLI partnered with parent leaders from across the country to share key issues affecting children and families with President Joe Biden — offering to partner with the President and answer his call for community voice at decision-making tables as policies are built and shaped in his first 100 days in office and beyond.
Recommendations were reached through a series of “Dear Mr. President” Parent Policy Tables — virtual events, convened by the National Parent Leadership Institute (NPLI). NPLI is a non-partisan, parent-centered, anti-racist organization that partners with parents and communities to equip families with the civic skills, knowledge, and opportunities to be leading advocates for children at home, school, and in the community. The personal and collective voice in the Open Letter to President Biden, represents urban, suburban, rural, Sovereign Nations and communities off the mainland — equally diverse in racial, cultural, economic and language backgrounds. Parents across the country are adding their support by signing the letter electronically here.
