As a part of their advocacy mission, they lean in locally with grassroots engagements with parents. Gau mentions they have around 2,000 active parents they work with on advocacy issues. This includes, literacy issues and school funding. As soon as COVID-19 hit in March, they did their best to put the health and safety of others first. Gau is working on projects to help families as much as possible during this pandemic.
