EALgreen stands in support of the Black Lives Matter movement

We stand in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Our hearts are broken for the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and the countless others who have been taken as a result of systemic racism. Black people in particular have been marginalized, contributing to but not benefitting from the American dream.

Aligned with our mission to serve, each EAL team and board member is committed to creating and supporting a just society that promotes access, equity, and freedom, particularly for our Black family.

EALgreen’s mission is to assist students in their pursuit of higher education. Since our conception we have worked to serve students conscious of our fundamental belief that education is a key element in the elimination of social and economic injustices. These students are leading the way for change, and we stand with them in solidarity.

Moving forward we will increase our efforts to ensure students of color, HBCU partners, and other higher education administrators have our full support in creating pathways to academic and economic equity.

We call on business leaders, academics, and policymakers to join EALgreen in ensuring that all people are afforded equal rights in America. We will continue to use our platform to advocate for equality and economic opportunity through education, while building an organization that reflects the communities we serve.
