THE STORY:

I am the Board Chair of Cultural Leadership - a great organization that is "Teaching teens to be activists, community organizers and "troublemakers of the best kind.'"

I have been involved with Cultural Leadership for nine years.  My daughter Hannah is a graduate of Class 7.  This organization changes the lives of the participants, giving them knowledge and skills to create change in the world.  Just as important, it teach Jewish and African American history, helping the participants to connect to values and traditions of both peoples.  A recent evaluation indicates that a large majority of our graduates live the mission, and are working on social justice issues in their educational, career or volunteer activities.

Last year, I ran my first "Race to End Racism". This year, I will be unable to run, as I'm organizing a service project at Gateway STEM High School that will be staffed by 800 participants of the Clinton Global Initiative- University - a conference occuring at Washington University the very same weekend.  But I have two able stand-ins!  Our family will be represented in the Race by our daughters - Hannah and Mara Davison.

We all would greatly appreciate your support!

Cultural Leadership Inc wrote -

Cultural Leadership exists to create a more just and equitable community by educating high school students in the St. Louis region to recognize and resolve issues of privilege and injustice to become social justice activists.

Our students develop leadership skills, build relationships and facilitate dialogues to become change agents and what we affectionately call "troublemakers of the best kind," to make St. Louis and the greater community more socially just and inclusive.

Why Cultural Leadership?

Although progress has been made on the inequalities in our society related to racism and discrimination, there continues to be disparities in education, healthcare, economic development and the criminal justice system.  Historic housing and social patterns in St. Louis have created few opportunities for students of different races to interact.  Where opportunities do exist, self-segregation often occurs.

According to a report entitled Racial Equality in the St. Louis Region: A Call To Action, St. Louis is one of the most racially segregated, most racially polarized metropolitian areas in the country with too many people suffering the inherent consequences.

Clearly, there is a need for enlightened future leaders who recognize and understand these disparities and inquities and who can take action agains social injustice to benefit all aspects of our society.

This is why Cultural Leadership is so important!

Join our cause, run with us in a race to end racism!
