Our members ARE our team. Together, we are building the political power we need to win education and economic justice for all.
Our co-directors Maria Harmon and Ben Zucker co-founded Step Up Louisiana because they saw the need for an independent organization with a racial justice analysis that could win on education justice and economic justice issues. Together they are working to build Step Up into a powerful force across the state.
