At Public Allies, we know that there’s no space quite like a PA space, and we were reminded of this truth during our first Regional (East Coast) Alumni Assembly Room. Massive thanks to all of you who joined us for this event. Your energy, participation, and enthusiasm was incredible!

Recap of Our East Coast Assembly Room –
Here’s a recap of what went down during the East Coast Assembly Room:
Alumni 2 Alumni Catch-Up and Networking: We kicked things off with Alumni 2 Alumni sessions, where attendees had the chance to catch up and connect. If you couldn’t make it but would like to catch up, we’d love to hear from you! Fill out this survey and let us know what you’ve been up to.
The Soundtrack of PA: What musical jam best represents your time as a Public Ally? We asked our alumni just that and received some awesome submissions. You can listen to these jams on our PA Spotify playlist. If you have your own jam to add, don’t hesitate to send it our way!
Exploring LEE’s Impact: We’ve been hearing fantastic feedback from our alumni about recent events hosted by our partners at Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE). If you’re curious what all the buzz is about, we encourage you to register with LEE and explore some of their upcoming events.
Rapid Coordination Session: We wrapped up the assembly room with a dynamic rapid coordination session.
