The initiative aims to move life-changing scholarly learnings to those in best position to deliver them to young people. A group of Bay Area non-profits and foundations will spend the day co-creating a vision for collaborative projects that disrupt patterns of racism, bias, and inequality.

— Bob Moses, education visionary and civil rights activist
