About United Parent Leaders Action Network (UPLAN)
UPLAN is a national parent-led network of parent leaders and parent leadership organizations united to build a powerful voice to influence policies and programs that matter to low and moderate-income families and children. UPLAN was formed to create national impact. Each UPLAN member organization has grassroots parents in the lead, setting the agenda, building power and working to make change on behalf of children and families. UPLAN currently has three national policy campaigns: 1) increasing access and affordability of child care and early education; 2) promoting real parent engagement in education and other family-serving systems; and 3) protecting immigrant families and children.
The National Organizer will be supervised by the Lead National Organizer and will be part of a team of three employees. UPLAN staff members operate under the oversight of Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI), UPLAN’s fiscal sponsor and lead partner. COFI's mission is to strengthen the power and voice of low-income and working families at all levels of civic life – from local institutions and communities to the city, state and federal policy arenas.
