Update #12

McLean School of Maryland's Equity Club makes a contribution!

Comment

A big loud shout out to the members of the Equity Club at the McLean School of Maryland. The goal of the Equity club is to help promote freedom from bias. They held a fundraiser for the American Promise campaign and raised $180! These students recognized the importance of shedding light on the achievement gap in order to dispel biases our society has placed on male students of color. We send lots of love to the Equity Club for taking on this initiative. You guys rock!
