Letha Muhammad is the Executive Director of Education Justice Alliance (EJA), based in Raleigh, North Carolina. She is working to advance the organizations mission to dismantle the School to Prison and School to Deportation Pipeline in her local school district, Wake County Public Schools and to advance equity in public education. She believes that working with parents, students and families that are directly impacted by these issues is one of the most effective ways for her to contribute. As such, her work includes engagement and leadership training with parents, students, and community members to ensure they know their rights and how to advocate for themselves and students. Working with other community stakeholders and organizations to bring awareness to the issue of school pushout and the criminalization of Black and Brown students is another one of her key roles as executive director. Letha represents EJA on the coordinating committee of the National Dignity in Schools Campaign and serves as co-chair on the coordinating committee for Every Child NC, a statewide coalition working to ensure equitable funding for our public schools.
