Leadership & commitment
Supporting the vision of MnEEP
MnEEP’s multi-racial staff equips educators, schools, and districts with essential tools and knowledge to address and dismantle racist practices in education and build reparative, racially just learning environments where every student has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
We work with districts and educators to advance original research, community-led convenings, network-building, and advocacy to build justice and fairness for Minnesota’s POCI students—and to ensure educators and school leaders are equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to create healing, empowering education spaces that support the full development of every student.
Our board members are integral to our mission.
Our Board members have wide variety of experience and expertise in education. Their range of skills and perspectives are integral to the progress and success of our organization. Several members have served with MnEEP for a number of years, helping us shape and support our achievements.
We are thankful for their continued leadership and commitment as we work towards educational equity in Minnesota.
