    Type of Organization

    DSC Organizational Members are broken down into the stakeholder groups described below. We recognize that these definitions are not perfect descriptions of the member groups in the DSC. We pledge to use them in a way that is flexible to enable organizations that use different models of organizing to engage in DSC leadership, and we pledge to evaluate them moving forward. Youth and parent base-building groups mobilize and educate a constituency of people affected by the issues the organization addresses and supports them to develop as leaders and engage in campaign activities. We encourage membership of groups that support participation of those most affected by school pushout (including youth who have been suspended, expelled, pushed out or criminalized, and their families). Such groups develop and are accountable to leadership that reflects its constituency, and generally have membership meetings and other processes where key decisions on issue identification, campaign direction, strategy and tactics as well as organizational decision-making and structure are made. Educator groups represent a base of teachers or other staff (i.e. guidance counselors, social workers, counselors, deans, etc.) that are actively working in K-12 schools. This can include membership-based organizations of teachers or other school staff, networks of educators or schools, or unions. Policy or advocacy groups are non-profit organizations that engaged in reform efforts on issues that are central to the mission of DSC, such as school pushout, school-to-prison pipeline, educational justice, juvenile/criminal justice, racial justice/civil rights, disability rights, LGBTQ rights, and/or human rights. A policy or advocacy group differs from a base-building group in that it lacks an organizational membership of the communities most affected by the education system and school pushout. A policy or advocacy group may include legal organizations and policy organizations.
