Our neighborhoods are dramatically different than they were 60 years ago. The Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education (1954), the Civil Rights Act of 1968, and Oklahoma City’s history of segregation has caused neighborhoods that are largely polarized by both race and class. This disconnectedness has resulted in unequal educational opportunity and outcomes for the students and families who belong to these communities.
We aren’t ok with that.
We believe that when we build relationships between students, businesses, community volunteers, and other collaborators – everyone wins! We believe that we can transcend barriers that have historically kept communities divided and work to end disconnectedness and the injustice and oppression that follows not knowing our brother for whom we are called to be a “keeper.”
WHAT ARE WE ALL ABOUT
This is a historic time in our city. In 2019-2020, the OKCPS’ consolidation means major change for the students of our city. We want these changes to be a catalyst for the success for our students & won’t stop until it happens! We believe that the entire community plays a role and that collaboration with the community is critical. It takes all of us and we want to help relationships begin.
