March Impact Awards to Dorsey High School Teachers

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable announced its Impact Awards for March on Saturday, March 16. The March awards are part of its Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project. The Project supports organizations and individuals working in Los Angeles County’s and other cities most underserved communities. In March, we selected ten teachers from Los Angeles’s Dorsey High School to receive individual Impact Micro cash Awards. The funds will go to provide the teachers with much needed classroom materials, books, tapes, visual aids, office supplies, and computer equipment. Severe budget cutbacks within the L.A. Unified School District and other school districts nationally have sharply restricted the funds teachers and administrators have to provide materials for students.

“Budget cutbacks and the on-going struggle of small community service groups for funding have made it more imperative that we help fill the funding gap to boost them in their efforts to build community sustainability in under-served communities,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Building Self-Sustaining Communities Project aims to further community self-reliance and independence. This is the pathway to citizen empowerment.”
