This is the first in what will be a series of personal recommendations for those who watch the TEACHED films and want to get involved in making a difference in their city or state. 

In honor of UCLA's "Academic Inequality Awareness Week" and our TEACHED Vol. I screening there tonight, I will share some links below to a few organizations that are doing amazing work in Los Angeles and state-wide (and a few national groups).

YOU CAN BE THE CHANGE by following, supporting and joining these organizations (there are many more, but this would be my initial go-to list):

Democrats for Education Reform - LA

Students for Education Reform - Various

Teacher groups:

Educators for Excellence - LA

Teach Plus - LA

Teach for America - LA

National groups (but hopefully venturing into CA sometime soon):

Black Alliance for Educational Options

Hispanic Council for Reform and Educational Options

Stand for Children 

Great place for education reform analysis:

Dropout Nation
