We envision a world where every child has equal educational opportunity, equal protection, and equal process—ensuring and creating equal lives.
We fight for equal educational opportunity and equal rights for underserved, school-aged students while empowering parents to advocate for their children.
In 2016, a group of concerned citizens from Michigan United in Kalamazoo, Michigan founded a program to address the School-to-Prison pipeline. This program garnered such positive support that on May 21, 2018, the program took on a life of its own. SEE CHANGE became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
With George White as the Executive Director, SEE CHANGE took on the goal of advocating for equal educational opportunities and due process for underserved youth in Kalamazoo Public Schools (KPS), Alternative Learning Schools, and Juvenile Justice Schools.
Since its founding, SEE CHANGE has successfully provided educational advocacy for 20 families with profound results:
- Children have been transferred from Alternative Schools back to KPS.
- Children who were suspended or expelled are now re-enrolled with intervention and support.
- Children with known disabilities, overlooked by KPS, now have Individualized Educational Plans.
- Children’s civil rights complaints have prompted oversight by the State of Michigan.
