The Somali Parents Education Board (SPEB), formed in 2015, is a parent-led grassroots organization of parents in the Seattle, Washington area, working to close the education gap by promoting  Somali parent leadership in the education system.  SPEB seeks to inspire Somali parents to become leaders and strong advocates for themselves and their children’s education by providing them with the resources and the support they need.  SPEB works to create Somali parent leadership in schools, breach the communication gap and create culturally sensitive and inclusive schools that partner with Somali families to address the educational needs of Somali students and help parents know their rights and navigate the education system as equal partners.
