On Thursday, October 26, the Surge community convened to celebrate and share about the ongoing effort to expand diversity in the education leadership pipeline. Part of that celebration included attending Broadway in Chicago’s production of Hamilton as a family!
The evening was the result of fundraising and awareness effort in partnership with Broadway in Chicago and made possible by a generous donation from the Surge Institute Leadership Circle: Darryl and Angela Cobb, Nneka Rimmer and the Cleveland Avenue Foundation for Education. We did more than raise thousands of dollars toward this work. We built bridges and grew community.
The evening, in many ways, encapsulated the mission, the work and the significance of replacing the status quo with voices and cultures that understand the communities being served.
If you would like to support Surge and the work we do to bring more leaders of color to the decision making tables in education, please make a donation. Thank you to all who attended and supported The Power of Us!
