We are a team of Black, Asian, and White educators who came together because of our work at the intersection of equity + design + education. At the beginning of 2020, this campaign began with the goal of running design sprints to help schools focus more clearly on equity. When COVID-19 moved everyone into quarantine, we shifted our attention to trying to connect people who might be struggling outside of the known spaces in our lives. We landed where we are now, focused on community-based reparations and micro-reparations after the murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd renewed the intensity of the Black Lives Matter Movement.
This campaign began with a small group of dedicated citizens but it was never just us. We acknowledge the love and learning shared with us by so many en route to the launch of this project. We hope to grow this necessary and hopeful project with the help and support of many more people in the days to come.
