Dear AFT Guild Members,

In Solidarity,

The California Council on Economic Education (CCEE) mission is to improve California’s economic future by teaching economics and financial literacy, especially in under-served communities.

We are at a critical crossroads when it comes to the economic outlook for millions of Californians. The pandemic, it’s financial fallout, and racial inequities have made it clear – while some may emerge financially stable, many could end up in fiscal ruins. Those most at risk of the latter are Black, Indigienous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

CCEE is kicking off a new campaign, the BIPOC Opportunity Project, which builds upon their existing mission with a renewed focus specifically on combating racial economic inequality. Through robust economic education, the Initiative’s actions will result in increased mobility and resilience for BIPOC students.

CCEE has set a goal of raising $50,000 for the BIPOC Opportunity Project campaign by November 1st with continued support from corporations and foundations committed to racial equity. Your support will ensure that CCEE’s educator-focused programming fills these glaring gaps in the school system by delivering timely, engaging, and relevant content to students that need it most.
