#OurVoiceOurSchools is often chosen to represent Denver nationally at Racial Justice Conferences. #OVOS continues to work to gain media attention for being the only Black Owned Organization in Colorado that directly impacts the school to prison pipeline through advocacy and education.
#OurVoiceOurSchools Black Parent Empowerment Summit
Denver hasn’t seen a parent empowerment event with over 300 attendees in our recent history. #OVOS provided powerful parent advocacy training in order to organize and advocate for Black children in public schools as well as deepen their understanding of the 5-Education Empowerment Pillars of the #OVOS campaign.
