Help Provide Scholarships for Congress of Racial Equity Retreats

Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) is a student-led club run through Garfield High School that focuses on complex issues of race and how it interacts with, gender, sexuality, family dynamics, mental health, and other intersections of identity. They bring a diverse group of Garfield students and staff on three retreats each year in effort to build community and strengthen relationships. These trips are considered some of the most powerful and eye-opening experiences in students’ lives.

In order to make trips financially accessible for all students, providing scholarships for retreats is a big part of CORE’s mission. Traditionally, over 50% of the students on the trip need full scholarships to cover the trip cost ($180 per student). The first retreat is Nov. 16-18 and they are hoping to raise $3000 for scholarships. Your support is vital to their success. Any donation will help provide unique and important trips for a diverse community!
