GFFE Grant Focuses on Equality in Our Justice System
The Guilford Fund for Education is thrilled to announce our first grant of the 2020-21 academic year awarded to Guilford High School’s Language Arts Teacher, Heather Bradley, that will benefit the entire Freshman class. Heather’s proposal includes the book “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson and a speaker from a representative from the Equal Justice Initiative. “Just Mercy” not only highlights social justice issues among Black and Latino people, it also captures the challenges faced by the incarcerated in the United States. The essence of the true story illustrates the power of mercy.
This grant will challenge our Guilford youth, bringing an experience that is far from most and creating a forum for discussion around justice, racial and economic inequality and the impact of grace.
