Make your commitment to racial equity
Roosevelt Alumni for Racial Equity (RARE) has launched projects to promote racial equity at Roosevelt High School and is reaching out to other Seattle schools and communities. We are offering two annual scholarships at Roosevelt HS, and are preparing a documentary film, Roosevelt High School Beyond Black and White, about historical attempts at desegregation, and about the racial equity issues and divisions of today. In addition, RARE holds monthly Open Discussions on racial issues led by prominent experts and community leaders, and is launching a new initiative, Connections, to bring together students of different backgrounds for fun, meaningful experiences outside of school. Please see more information about RARE and its projects on the drop-down menu above.
RARE is looking for additional volunteers and financial supporters. We welcome you to participate.
I’m impressed by the work being carried out by Roosevelt Alumni for Racial Equity. Through their projects and discussion sessions they are making a positive impact on racial equity at Roosevelt High School and in its community. — Principal HkwauaQueJol (“Q”) Hollins of Roosevelt High School
