Equity in Action Grant:

Pushing for Progress in our Communities
The film below, directed by André Robert Lee (Prep School Negro and I’m Not Racist, Am I?), is about the MCRC@ADVIS Carney Sandoe Equity in Action grant program launched in 2019. The film premiered to open Carney Sandoe's Forum/Diversity 2020 in Philadelphia on Friday, January 24, 2020, and highlights each of the three projects from the inaugural class of grantees, featuring folks from four ADVIS schools. Each project was featured in a one hour workshop at Forum/Diversity, as well as at the MCRC@ADVIS DEI Conference on October 11, 2019, and some at other conferences, including the NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC) in Seattle in December 2019, and the NAIS Annual Conference in Philadelphia, February 2020.
