Our Equity Beliefs

Instagram Logo (2).png

We exist to address the legacy of systemic racism in our education system.

We believe the work of our programs is equity work. We believe equity work starts with us. We look at ourselves first and talk about the role race and identity plays in our work, experiences, and decisions. We strive to be constantly anti-racist in everything we do, and that includes our support of our partners, our program design and every interaction we have with you.​ 

Our Commitment to Centering Equity

We believe that our equity work starts with us; we look at ourselves first. We reflect and talk about the role race plays in our work, experiences, and decisions. We strive to be consistently anti-racist in our words and actions.


We value the cultural norms, mission, vision and values of the individuals and organizations with whom we partner and believe there is more than one “right” way to educate kids or build a network. We learn from each other and go further together.​​

We are focused on academic achievement AND know that school outcomes encompass more than academic outcomes.


We know that there are aspects of our approach and materials that perpetuate white supremacy culture. Therefore, we consistently reflect on our work, interrogate our systems and structures, solicit feedback from diverse stakeholders, and work to change parts of our program when they are not meeting our leaders’ needs and our bar for racial equity.
