Please help us reach our $500 goal to support local students/teachers.  As COVID-19 led to school closures, Staff Council's Employee Engagement committee focused on what we might do to assist in some way. The Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI) helped us identify a funding request they had received that aligned with criteria we outlined:  A) Student/Education focused B) Supports remote/at home learning, and C) Art-related.

Since we started, some art supplies have already been distributed. With your help we can fulfill our goal to reach more students.  It only takes a minute to donate: weblink.donorperfect.com/IPEIIC2020. Any amount ($5 or whatever you are able to give) is truly appreciated. 

Consider a donation as a graduation gift to honor a student or as an end of year gift to honor their teacher.  Any/all gifts will be used to support grant requests.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Today we remember:

  • the 49 victims and 53 survivors of the Pulse Nightclub shooting that took place four years ago today
  • Dominique Rem’mie Fells of Philadelphia and Riah Milton of Liberty Township, Ohio, two Black transgender women reported dead this week.
  • George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery
  • the seven Black transgender women killed in Florida in less than two years: Bee Love, Kiki Fantroy, Londonn Moore, Sasha Garden, Cathalina Christina James, Antash’a English, and Celine Walker
  • Tony McDade, a Black transgender man shot by Tallahassee police two weeks ago.
  • Countless more whose lives have been taken.

Black Lives Matter. We must commit ourselves to the actions those words require. Actions in opposition to white supremacy, systemic racism and police brutality.

Each day we’re called upon to honor the victims of racism and injustice. We must honor them with action.
