Ed Trust–West is partnering with a number of civil rights, education, and social justice organizations including Congregations Organized for Prophet Engagement (COPE), Inland Congregations United for Change (ICUC), ACLU of Southern California, Youth Action Project, Inc. (YAP), BLU Educational Foundation, San Bernardino Branch NAACP, LULAC of the Inland Empire, DELAC of San Bernardino City USD, San Bernardino City USD African American Advisory Council, and the Latino Education & Advocacy Days (LEAD) Organization to launch our first Community-Based Data & Research Hub in San Bernardino County.
To support existing efforts throughout the state, Ed Trust–West will first focus on San Bernardino County, collaborating with community-based organizations to create data and research tools that bolster existing advocacy efforts.
At a recent Hub event, over 200 participants from K–12, higher education, civil rights, and community-based organizations came together at Cal State San Bernardino. At this College & Career Readiness Day of Learning. Participants engaged in interactive presentations on local and regional education data, A-G course access, career pathways, and new policies dedicated to increasing college access for historically underrepresented students. Check out the video above and presentation slides and photos below to see more about the event.
