About the Organization
MissionThe mission of the Educational Equity Institute is to create paths toward racial healing through authentic engagement and relationships that empower communities to engage in disruptive transformation of the educational system.
A primary and fundamental component of equity and justice work is to place an emphasis on helping individuals and communities heal from the wounds of historical trauma and white supremacy. We offer an approach that can be used by communities to organize, focus on healing historical trauma and the effects of white supremacy, empower individuals within marginalized neighborhoods to take control of their own narrative, and engage White neighborhoods in discussions about racial inequity so that we can begin shifting the narrative within individual communities and create more equitable educational systems. The services we offer include professional development training, as well as consultation related to altering pedagogy and curriculum, and systems change.
