I am able to further process my dual identity as a person of color and a white ally, focus my anger productively, and extend my reach beyond the classroom.

The Collective forges connections between corps members and alumni of color, giving us a safe and familiar place to exist.

It is those who are part of The Collective who can put a mirror up to their students’ lives and see a reflection of their own. And that is what truly sets us apart as agents of change.

The Collective provides an incredible opportunity to interact with other like-minded people of color. I have been challenged, inspired, and sharpened.
