Amplifying Educator Voices

We are a brand new NEA funded IEA grant project that is here to help amplify YOUR voice on educational policy affecting YOU, YOUR STUDENTS and YOUR COMMUNITIES. We are creating Educator Voice Academies in every IEA office across the state, including YOURS!

All EVA Fellows will receive organizing stipends.

Amplifying Marginalized Perspectives

All EVA Fellows and Voice Coaches will work with local allies on local and state educational policy issues that 'Amplify Marginalized Perspectives'. However, we will also have several topical work groups to coordinate efforts. Learn more about our work groups below.

Applications are Open!

The application window to become an EVA Fellow for the 2023-24 school year closed on May 31. However, it is not too late to apply to become an EVA Collaborator and work with others across Illinois to amplify Educator Voice.
