Dear friends and colleagues,

For schools to be places where every young person is valued, where their creative genius is celebrated, and where they are prepared for success in life, school communities must first build the mindsets, skills, and collective energy needed to make their schools more equitable and just.That’s what we do at Kindred: We provide brave spaces for caregivers and schools to co-create liberated schools.

I’m thrilled to announce that we are setting big goals for ourselves over the next five years in service of building just schools. By 2027, we want to:

  • Deepen our impact to serve 50 DC schools
  • Expand our work to serve three new communities nationally
  • Launch an alumni network with 500 active members

Partner with us: This isn’t just a plan on paper: it’s a roadmap to creating more just schools within your school communities. If you are ready to partner with us, our application to partner for School Year 2022-23 is open.

I’m so honored to partner with the most amazing, brilliant, and creative schools, their dedicated educators, and the caregivers who want the very best for our children. I hope you will join us on this journey.

In kindred spirit,


Schedule: A meeting with the Kindred Team | Support: Our path forward
