Border Crossers

Border Crossers’ mission is to train and header_logo_standardempower educators to dismantle patterns of racism and injustice in our schools and communities. At Border Crossers, we envision a world where all young people learn and thrive in racially equitable, liberating, and empowering educational spaces.  Border Crossers utilizes creative tools to encourage educators in explorations of race and racism with K-12 students. We believe that if educators are prepared to have meaningful conversations about equity, students will be better equipped to interrupt patterns of structural racism and injustice in their own lives and thrive in a multicultural society. Border Crossers’ work is based on 15 years of innovative diversity, multiculturalism and education equity programming in New York City schools. We have worked with thousands of teachers across the United States, impacting over 30,000 students.  Learn more about Border Crossers at www.bordercrossers.org
