At this critical moment for American democracy, the Urban Assembly resolutely reaffirms our commitment to the rights and dignity of every student, every family, every human being. 

We are a community of nearly 9,000 students and adults representing the glorious diversity that makes our city – and our country –a beacon to the world. Nearly half of our students are first- or second-generation immigrants.  More than 37 languages are spoken in UA families’ homes.  Each of these families contributes to and deserves America’s very best.

At the Urban Assembly we will seek every opportunity to ensure that all of our young people continue to receive an outstanding public education - and that they have the chance to grow into adulthood in a country that lives by our founding and enduring values.
