Washington, DC: The National Alliance WE THE PEOPLE – MATH LITERACY FOR ALL is planning a Public Briefing on “Mathematics Literacy in the Age of the Knowledge Economy” on Capitol Hill on Thursday morning, July 18, 2019. The purpose of the Briefing is to call attention to the very large number of young people who lose the thread in their mathematical development early in the going, often because of who they are or where they live or other life circumstances over which they have little or no control.
The Briefing represents an initial public call to Congress and the Nation’s mathematical and educational leadership for the Direct Federal Investment and Involvement needed to supply the resources, innovation and energy necessary to open the door to participation in the 21st century economy to our Nation’s most vulnerable young.

The “We the People” National Alliance is dedicated to uniting a variety of schools and organizations fighting for equity and excellence in math education across our country. This space is dedicated to sharing members’ stories and experiences as well as opportunities related to promoting math literacy as a constitutional right for all students.
