He says organizers hope to empower teachers and combat burnout — and they realize there is some frustration over recent political developments, but their goal remains the same.

“Teach for America is bipartisan in our politics, but we stay grounded and rooted in expanded opportunity for young people,” Adams said. “We have to be aware of what’s changing on the landscape, regardless of who is in the seat of power locally and or nationally to make sure that we are agile and responsive to that, so the work that we do in Philadelphia continues.”
