Camden parent & student union


Our Mission

We are a group of concerned Camden parents, caregivers and guardians that work diligently advocating for better education, safer schools, equal funding, maximum resources and inclusion in any decisions that are made for our children’s education. The CPU would like to see the quality of urban public education be given the same opportunity as suburban education and corporate charter education. CPU will continue to educate, empower and organize the parents of Camden, New Jersey and be a voice for and advancing the traditional public schools of Camden, NJ. 


Is a youth led organization of Camden, NJ public school students from grades 9th-12th.  CSU was established in 2013-14 by a group of courageous students that was fed up with the way that their voice were overlooked in the process for better education for the Camden City School District. The students meet monthly with the Camden Parent Union to seek advice and to organize for issues that they deem as important. They also travel nationally and provide the students voice in many conferences and protest.  The CSU single handedly have been the heroes for public education in Camden, NJ.


Join Our Cause: Advocate for Better Education in Camden

Together, we work tirelessly to ensure that every child in Camden receives the education they deserve. Join us as we empower parents, organize for change, and amplify our voices to advance traditional public schools and create a brighter future for our children."
