We stand with our sisters and brothers across the country who are seeking justice and meaningful change. The deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and many others are the result of racial injustice that plagues our society. City Connects was developed to lift children over barriers to their success – especially in low-income urban school districts. This mission continues to guide our work and our conviction that with the right support, every child can thrive. We are deeply invested in promoting justice, supporting one another, and amplifying our voices against all instances of oppression.
— Mary Walsh, Executive Director of City Connects
