We are approaching the end of a remarkable year. While I would be remiss not to mention the rollercoaster this year has been for our country—full of conflict, doubt and questions about the future of education—I am proud to see our movement continue to grow, thrive and impact our communities.
Hopelessness is often the enemy of justice, but Surge’s movement and the children being positively impacted provide reason for hope and joy this season.Through this newsletter I'm thrilled to tell the story of our impact, progress and success in 2017.
And we're just getting started!
Next year will bring a
new Surge Fellowship
, based in Oakland, California, aimed at elevating and empowering African-American, Latinx and Asian/Pacific Islander emerging education leaders.
In a world of uncertainty, in the cool winter season, beauty still blooms. I am proud to look back and thrilled to look ahead. Thank you for being a part of this movement, and enjoy the holidays!
