WASHINGTON -- David Johns, Executive Director of the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC), is proud to announce that the Education Leaders of Color (EdLoC) has selected the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) as one of this year’s Boulder Fund grantees. 

David Johns is one of the six recipients for his work on Thriving Summits. Thriving Summits build internal capacity of student leaders, specifically racial/ethnic and sexual minority students, by exposing them to programs and practices that can improve their lives holistically. Thriving Summits challenge traditional notions of what students “need” and address the complex issues that students and their families face in the pursuit of cognitive, social, and emotional development opportunities. 

“Students are screaming for support--they’re begging caring and concerned adults to do a better job of supporting their learning and development by responding to the needs they identify and supporting the solutions they think are worthy of pursuit, this is the goal of Thriving Summit’s and I am thankful for the support provided by the Boulder Fund,” said David J. Johns 

The Boulder Fund is EdLoC’s multi-million dollar grant program created to support the innovations of leaders of color in education. It has committed $2.6 million in grants since 2018. We’d be grateful if you, as a supporter of David’s work in the community, could help amplify the news about his Boulder Fund award and the work he’s doing to improve outcomes for youth of color.
