Statement on Black Lives Matter
Black lives matter. Equity in education and civil rights are inextricably linked. A nation that fails to educate the most economically vulnerable in its nation cannot purport to value their lives. GrantEd Foundation’s mission to support teachers on the front lines of democracy in the highest need communities is more critical now than it has ever been.
The only way for long-lasting, meaningful change to systemic racism is education. We stand with Black Lives Matter protestors teaching us all that values matter most when least convenient and we stand with teachers fighting to break the school to prison pipeline that has plagued America’s black children for generations.
