The national SEED project launched March 04, 2017, in the city of Takoma Park thanks to the efforts of Mayor Kate Stewart, SEED leader Annie Mozer, SEED leader Rachel Alexander and SEED leader Shereece Millet.
The SEED project, which stands for Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity, focuses on seminars facilitated by local residents who have been trained as SEED leaders. Through personal reflection and testimony, listening to others' voices, and learning experientially and collectively, SEED equips participants to connect their lives to one another by acknowledging systems of oppression, power, and privilege—and challenges them to push for change.
Mayor Stewart, who signed up to participate in the Takoma SEED project, has found the experience enlightening, empowering and equipping in both her professional and personal life. Thank you again to Mayor Stewart, Annie Mozer, Rachel Alexander and to all the individuals who joined SEED as part of their commitment to community engagement and their commitment to diversity and inclusion in Takoma Park.
