Working toward equity can feel disheartening, frustrating, and isolating. At the National Equity Project, we believe there’s another way to do this work—a way that connects and sustains ourselves and our communities.

Our There’s Another Way event series aims to build community among equity-focused leaders rooted in connection, inspiration, honoring multiple perspectives, and collectively reimagining what’s possible for all.

After a successful Social Justice Happy Hour in the fall of 2016, we’re bringing you another at the beginning of 2018. Join us to connect with equity-focused educators and leaders of all kinds! As we happily bid farewell to 2017, and embark on a new year in post-45 America, we are inviting social-justice-minded folks together to build community, make meaningful connections, laugh, re-energize, and remind ourselves and each other that we are not alone!

On Tuesday, January 9, from 5-7pm, you’ll have the opportunity to meet people doing a wide variety of equity-focused work; reflect on what matters to you and hear the same from others; give and get ideas and resources to inspire your work; enjoy a little music and entertainment; and eat some treats with a glass of wine or beer. We would love to see new faces and old friends come together to inspire each other’s spirits and work for social justice in our schools and communities.

History Spotlight

2017 November 23, 2002 - "First Native American Travels to Space" John Herrington, a registered member of the Chickasaw Nation, was the first Native American to travel into space as the mission specialist for STS-113, the 16th mission to the International Space Station. During his mission, Herrington performed three spacewalks that totaled 19 hours and 55 minutes. The length of his mission was 13 days, 18 hours and 47 minutes. Herrington was inducted to the Chickasaw Hall of Fame the same year he went into space. William Pogue, a crewman aboard Skylab 4 in 1973-1974, had Choctaw ancestry, but was not an enrolled member of the Choctaw.
