IEL is asking our networks, partners, advocates, and those new to IEL’s work to #RiseUpforEquity on the global day of giving, #GivingTuesday, November 27th.
On the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, you’ll have the chance to join people around the world to support IEL initiatives that close access and achievement gaps in education and workforce development through innovation and leadership development.
By joining this movement, you’re supporting youth, families, and under-resourced communities in ensuring that all state and local workforce development and education systems serve everyone, including people living with disabilities.
Mark your calendars, and help us spread the word with the following activities:
- Consider making a gift for as little as $25 on #GivingTuesday 11/27
- Help us get the word out on social media using our #GivingTuesday Social Media Toolkit
- Go LIVE on Facebook and share how you are standing up for equity using hashtags #RiseUpforEquity and #GivingTuesday
- Take photos showing why you want to Rise Up for Equity using #RiseUpforEquity and #GivingTuesday hashtags
On Thanksgiving day many people will be enjoying the holiday with their families. On Black Friday and Cyber Monday, shopping will be the focus. We hope that you choose to make an impact on #GivingTuesday by giving back and supporting an organization like IEL to develop leaders in over 100 communities nationwide. Please help us continue to create transformative and innovative solutions to eliminate systemic barriers in education and workforce development.
Also, be sure to join IEL staff live on Facebook November 27th throughout the day as we share why we rise up for equity.
