BENEFITING: ERAC-CE

Lisa Kaiser

THE STORY:

I am raising money to attend an anti-racism training course for educators. I work in a high school with growing diversity, and want to ensure that all students' needs are met equally.

Churchill High School in Livonia, Michigan, like many in other high schools in the nation, has a changing student population.  In the past decade, as our numbers of students of color have increased dramatically, our staff and administrators have been faced with the deepening challenge of meeting the needs of every student, and the diversity of their needs continues to grow.

 In an effort to make CHS a positive, productive, and safe space for all students, our staff has developed an Anti-Racism Task Force to address issues of racism and systemic bias that our students face every day in the hallways and in their classrooms. 

Beginning conversations about race and racism with staff, students, and parents can be difficult, and requires a great deal of sensitivity and training.  In order to build these skills, I am hoping to attend a course put on by ERAC/Ce, an anti-racism organization in Kalamazoo, Michigan, whose mission is to de-institutionalize racism throughout a variety of systems.  ERAC/Ce has developed a curriculum specifically for educators who are organizing anti-racist efforts in their buildings.

My hope, through this ask, is to acquire the funds to attend this course.  Tuition is $1800, and includes a rigorous 10-day curriculum that begins in August and runs throughout the fall semester.

I’m asking for your help.  Racism affects all of us every day, though we are often unaware of how.  It is my hope that, through hard work and outreach, we may begin to dismantle institutional racism not only at CHS, but throughout Livonia Public Schools.
