How do you become an engaged charter advocate? Start here! 

Welcome to the MI Charter Action Center!

As charter school advocates, we all know the dedication, passion and success our educators and schools provide for families and students across Michigan. Unfortunately, many of our elected and appointed officials do not. As they make decisions about things like student funding, K-12 regulation, testing, and more, it's critical that they hear OUR voices & stories. Here, you can support the MI charter movement with select activations, look up your local lawmakers & more!  

To the left, you'll find our legislative engagement tool! This unique program helps connect you with your lawmakers and help take action around key charter issues. Here's a quick breakdown of how to use the tools:
