As part of our efforts to recruit and retain Black educators of color, MEC has partnered with Black Lives Matter Philly on the Black Educators Fellowship. This micro grant allows educators (which includes paraprofessionals) of color to bring programming, supplies, or education focused activities to classrooms and education spaces around the city of Philadelphia.
