for Justice & Equity
Championing for Justice & Equity (CJE) is a three-year conversation on race, justice, and systemic inequity.
CJE is an education, a look in the mirror, and a path forward.
Reflecting on Summer Search's 32 years of experience mentoring and empowering young People of Color and First-Generation individuals, we present CJE as a space for our broader community to learn, engage, and take definitive action in your personal and professional lives.

Past Event: Closing the Education Equity Gap
On September 28, 2021, our panel of thought leaders as examined racial equity in the education system and sought to understand how/why school opportunities, outcomes, and environments differ along racial lines. Our attendees walked away with a greater understanding of:
Education reform and policy development;
How race plays a role in opportunities and outcomes for students;
How COVID exasperated learning along racial lines in urban areas;
The future of education equity and how we can all play a role.
We launched our Black Lives Matter Community Series to bring the Summer Search community together to heal, learn, and take action. That series has evolved into our CJE initiative.
Throughout this series, we will discuss the importance of listening, receiving feedback, reflecting on our own actions and those of others, and using diplomacy.
This three-year initiative is designed to:
- Support our larger community to gain greater understanding on inclusion, diversity, and innovation;
- Promote healing, minimize harm, and create a sense of belonging for all in the larger community;
- Work with experts in the larger community to build practices that deepen understanding of differences and further increase collaboration.
