The Partnership for Equity and Education Rights (PEER) is a national network of public interest law agencies and grassroots community organizers fighting for education equity and against the ongoing divestment of public education. PEER combines the skills and leadership of advocates, lawyers, organizers, and community leaders to build a national movement focused on investing in strong public schools and communities.
PEER’s goal is to maximize impact beyond state and local settings by helping to share strategies, grassroots engagement, model policies and law and policy expertise. By combining community and grassroots leadership with legal and public policy expertise, PEER strengthens efforts to ensure public schools are fully funded and all students have access to the resources and supports they need to succeed.
