WHAT IS BORDER CROSSERS?
Border Crossers is a grassroots education equity nonprofit whose unique program is designed to encourage educators in explorations of race, class and cultural differences with elementary students. We believe that only wheneducators are prepared to have equity-centered conversations about diversity, will students be able to grow into global citizens, capable of understanding and interrupting patterns of injustice in their own lives.
WHERE DOES YOUR DONATION GO?
With your support, this year Border Crossers will:
- Train 400 educators in why and how to talk about race with young students.
- Lead five schools in institutional racial justice organizing.
- Develop new curriculum.
- Organize a new Border Crossers Membership that offers more resources, support and training to BC educators.
