CLEAR was founded in February 2011 and became recognized by the federal government as a “non-profit organization” in March of 2012. CLEAR’s mission is that of a Center comprised of leaders in education and the community who prioritize inquiry and solutions to issues of race, culture, and equity for students in Prek-12, higher education campuses, and community sites. CLEAR is dedicated to be an organization of action, or “Praxis,” that addresses the three strands we have developed as our areas of expertise; Leadership,Equity, and Research. The essence of leadership for social justice and equity is to practice “praxis”. . . that which Paulo Freire described as “reflection and action upon the world in order to transform it.” It is to do the right thing in spite of the obvious barriers one encounters. We will continue to implement activities, including mentoring, on behalf of children and communities and are in conversation with other companies and organizations to do the same.
