Hosts REACH Project

Black Leadership Summit

February 20, 2010

 

The REACH project is designed to facilitate and sustain collaborations between Black student organizations and local community-based organizations (CBOs). The aim is to facilitate greater ties between student activists and the communities they represent.  Ultimately, the collaborations will work in service of families and neighborhoods in Philadelphia on issues such as increased access to education and healthcare as well as anti-crime and anti-violence initiatives.

Sponsored by Temple University’s Center for Social Justice and Multicultural Education and Drexel University’s Africana Studies Program, the free summit was held on Saturday, February 20, 2010 in Temple’s Howard S. Gittis Student Center. Titled Schools, Education and the Ongoing Civil Rights Struggle, this second annual REACH summit examined the educational activism in both K-12 settings and college campuses.
