"Before I attended the seminar I felt like grant writing was a necessary skill I needed as a teacher committed to trying transformational approaches in my pursuit of racial justice for my students, colleagues and myself. This seminar made it clear and simple and provided a template I modify depending on the grant source. It took away the vague sense of not knowing what works. I’ve been fortunate to see all but 1 grant I’ve applied for awarded to my efforts since then. In the past 2 years I’ve authored or co-authored 4 grants that have awarded almost $100,000 to racial justice work and dreams becoming reality. Go for it!"
