It’s week five of our Eight Week Donation Pledge. Each week, one of our employees selects an organization fighting for racial justice and equity to donate to. This week we are donating $1,500.00 to the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI).
“We can create a more just society but it doesn’t happen by itself. It is not inevitable.”
- Bryan Stevenson, Founder and Executive Director of EJI
This week for our Eight Weeks of Giving Pledge we are donating $1,500.00 split between two organizations that support education and fostering a new generation of leaders.
We will be donating to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the largest organization in the US to represent historically Black colleges and universities. The other organization we are donating to, Facing History and Ourselves, seeks to educate students of all backgrounds of the history of racism and prejudice. Learn more about the organizations below and consider donating directly to each organization this week.
The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) is the largest organization in the United States that represents historically Black colleges and universities and predominantly Black institutions. TMCF provides leadership, lobbying, job recruiting and scholarships, supporting the next generation of cultural leaders.
Facing History and Ourselves uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up against bigotry and hate. Facing History seeks to educate students of all backgrounds about the history of racism, prejudice and anti-Semitism. By working with individual teachers and school districts, Facing History and Ourselves tailors their programs specifically to every situation to ensure effectiveness.
