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.
We serve our community through the following program areas:
Citywide professional development workshops geared toward teachers, administrators, youth service providers, and parents. Check our events page for upcoming workshops near you.
Customized school-wide professional development that guides and supports individual school communities and organizations in building their capacity to enhance racial equity and justice within their institution. This includes, but is not limited to: coaching, curriculum development, strategic planning, and training for stakeholders.
Presenting at national conferences, universities and seminars.
