Racial Equity Again Focus of 2020 Grantee Convening

National Leaders Speak About Education in Covid-19 and Covid-19 Recovery

In September, Fifty-Two W. Clement & Jessie V. Stone Foundation grantees from all three of its program areas gathered for Transformation for Racial Equity: Moving Toward Action, the 2020 Annual Grantee Convening. Grounded by presentations from Linda Darling-Hammond, Learning Policy Institute, LaShawn Route’ Chatmon, National Equity Project, and John King, The Education Trust, grantees created a list of programs, policies, and practices that need to be transformed, reimagined or created in early childhood, youth development, and education in order to increase access and benefit for Black, Native American and Latinx children, their families, and communities. Participants considered:

  • the people and institutions that have the capacity and power to implement the strategy and distribute resources,
  • coalitions or allies that are essential to take action,
  • leverage points for creating something “new” or transforming existing policies and practices, and
  • actions their institutions can take.
