Dreamers for Change | A Plan of Action

An Achievable Dream has been working against racial injustice and inequities since we were founded.  It is who we are.  It is what we do.  An Achievable Dream has invited various staff, board members, and community leaders to join us in our efforts to improve our community by becoming a member of the Dreamers for Change Task Force

We have identified the mission of this task force to be a non-partisan group lead by Dreamers (An Achievable Dream students, alumni and staff) and community partners who are helping to build awareness, create solutions, and bring equity to communities though justice reforms, community outreach, and social and moral education.

The vision of this group is to create equitable communities through collaborationā€¦to be the Dreamer!

This page will continually be updated with action items and progress of the Task Force.
