Our Story

Every day, Latinos contribute to Kansas City’s shared prosperity. However, time and again, these contributions do not translate into long-term generational achievement.  When we launched the Latinx Education Collaborative (LEC) in 2018, our vision was to increase the representation of Latinx education professionals in K-12. 

At the same time, we saw an opportunity to further expand our reach and empower our community through political engagement and advocacy. We started Revolución Educativa, an affiliated 501(c)(4) organization, because we believe that in order to truly effect positive change and improve education outcomes, we must come together and give our communities the tools, resources and supports needed to build sustained collective power in Kansas City and beyond.

Our mission is to build sustained collective power for the Latinx community.

The Vision

We are committed to the Kansas City of the future; one with Latinx leaders who understand their collective power and use it to better the community for all.

Our People

Currently, there are 51,198 Latinx students in the Greater Kansas City metro area.

GRADUATION RATES

While improvements to high school completion among Latinos are evident, graduation rates for Latinos still trail the national average.

LATINX TEACHER - STUDENT GAP

In the United States, there are three times as many Latino students as there are teachers. In Kansas City, just 1% of teachers identify as Latinx.

POLITICAL REPRESENTATION

For Latinos, despite being the fastest growing subgroup in nearly every school in Kansas City Public School System (KCPSS), there is still a disproportionate underrepresentation at the governance level.
