$30,000 / 2014
Doran Schrantz, Executive Director
A one-year $30,000 renewal grant will support this multi-racial faith-based organizing group to build out its racial justice and education reform work to close the racial achievement gap and to hold the Minnesota Department of Education accountable to pursuing racial equity outcomes. Over the next year, ISAIAH will increase community pressure to end school suspensions in the four school districts where they have been working. At the state level, ISAIAH will build public support for expanded resources to fund alternative discipline models and organize for reforms in programs and school funding toward school desegregation and racial equity in educational outcomes.
