I'm a professor at a small liberal arts college in the Northeast. I have been deeply saddened by the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people of color and by ongoing racialized violence directed at African Americans. I believe that one way to counter systemic racism in our society is to greatly increase the numbers of people of color in positions of power, and a big step toward that goal is to increase their access to higher education. Please help me raise as much money as possible for UNCF, an organization that provides scholarship funds for African American college students and support to historically black colleges and universities. Thanks so much for your donation!
