Thank you for your interest in joining Team AJE. In 1996, Advocates for Justice and Education, Inc. (AJE) was created to increase parental participation in their children’s education. AJE’s mission is to empower families, youth, and the community to be effective advocates to ensure that children and youth – particularly those with disabilities and special health care needs – receive access to appropriate education and health services. AJE has designed all of its programs and services to increase parents’ knowledge and capacity to advocate for their children and build community power to achieve systems change, eliminate barriers, and dismantle educational and health inequities in DC. We utilize a multi-strategy approach to achieve our mission: Direct Services to address a family’s immediate issue; Training to increase parents’ knowledge and capacity to self-advocate; and Advocacy, in partnership with families and other stakeholder partners, to bring about systemic changes through policy, legislation, and litigation.
