Maisie Chin, Co-Founder and Director, CADRE

Maisie Chin is Co-Founder and current Director of CADRE – Community Asset Development Re-defining Education, an independent, grassroots parent membership organization in South Los Angeles comprised of low-income African American and Latino parents/caregivers. After working in a K-16 institutional and foundation collaboration around education reform for over six years, Ms. Chin and a South LA parent launched CADRE in 2001. CADRE’s mission is to solidify and advance parent leadership to ensure that all children are rightfully educated regardless of where they live. Through human rights-based community organizing and policy advocacy, CADRE parent leaders are fighting to end the push out of low-income families of color from public schools and the school-to-prison pipeline. Under Ms. Chin’s leadership CADRE has successfully influenced policy at the local school district level and is moving towards addressing state and national policies using the human rights framework.
