Every year a portion of the faculty/staff appreciation gift given by our Parents Association goes to support a local organization doing impactful work right here in our city. This
year, the recipient of that gift was Educators For Fair Consideration (E4FC).
E4FC is a local organization based in the Mission dedicated to empowering undocumented young people to achieve their educational and career goals. Educators for Fair Consideration transforms lives and fuels broader changes. With resources and support, undocumented young people are able to get an education, pursue careers, and build a brighter future for themselves and our country.
E4FC’s executive director (and current SFFS K parent) Katharine Gin joined us at our Winter Celebration to accept the gift and share a bit about the work she and her organization does. She was joined by E4FC scholar and former staff member, Denia Perez, who shared the impact E4FC had on her path to and through college, and eventually on to law school.
“It is such an honor to be given this gift and have an opportunity to reflect upon how E4FC’s core beliefs relate so closely to Quaker values” said Katherine. “We also envision a world where all of us—including undocumented people—has the freedom to pursue their dreams. When everyone realizes their full potential, we all benefit and shine. This generous gift will be used to support E4FC’s local scholarship, which helps amazing undocumented students here in the Bay Area.”
This donation is a wonderful tradition at our school that puts its Quaker values into action, right here in our own community in a very direct and powerful way. If you want to learn more about how you can get involved with E4FC please visit their website.
