Change through Education

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

MEJP believes in the power of education.  Advocating for real educational opportunities for everyone has always been one of our top priorities.

This includes fighting for the Parents as Scholars program and fair TANF-ASPIRE rules.  We have also fought for the rights of low-wage workers to further education and training benefits.

Finally, we hold workshops around the state to educate people about the laws that affect them and what they can do to influence the legislative process. 

We post Plain Language legal guides, in both English and other languages, and informational videos as an important part of our educational mission.

You can begin learning about some of the laws that affect you by searching our site or browsing through the menu under the "Priority Issues" tab.  Remember: Knowledge is power!
