What ASDE Means to Us...

We launched our membership drive on Tuesday with a message from Peter Gray, ASDE’s President, about our membership changes, accomplishments so far, and calls to action.

What truly matters to us is hearing comments like Sidney’s, from anyone who has reached out or used ASDE as a resource in their SDE journey, and knowing that together, as an Alliance, we can make a difference in people’s lives.

Join us now or renew your membership to support our mission of making Self-Directed Education a normal and accessible option for all young people and families!

Since we launched our membership drive on Tuesday, some of our organizing team have shared the importance of the Alliance and what it means to them in several short videos.

Akilah S. Richards invites you to join the Alliance and be part of a group of people that wants everyone to be able to access what they need to support their SDE journey.

Bria Bloom shares the importance of the Alliance in supporting collaboration, community, and connection within the SDE movement.

We all know the challenges that we face in seeking alternative paths for our children and ourselves, and together we are paving the path to make that road easier and more accessible for everyone. Join us now to help further the movement!
