Garvey/Allen Academy is APPROVED, Now we Need You!

Perseverance and Resilience are at the core of who Tiffany (Lewis) Gilmore is. In 2018 she made the BOLD decision to quit her six figure job and ferociously fight to eradicate the achievement gap for Black & Brown students. Mrs. Gilmore was denied 3 times, but on April 3, 2019 history was made. Garvey/Allen Visual & Performing Arts Academy for STEM was UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED by the Riverside County Board of Education. Now the hard work of opening the school on September 4, 2019 begins, and she needs YOU! 
We need financial support for:
1. Attorney Fees
2. Deposit for Facility
3. Permit Fees
4. Furniture
5. Washer & Dryers for "The Village Wash House" (on campus Laundry Room)
6. And so much more...

While the journey has been long and arduous, the marathon continues to invoke real change in education. The #GAVPAASTEM movement can only continue to thrive with consistent support and intentional actions moving forward. The recent transition of economic activist, Nipsey Hussle, has reignited the importance of ownership, community involvement and cultural preservation. But we cannot continue to wait until a tragedy occurs in order to galvanize and mobilize our community. It is this generation’s time to grab the baton, run our leg of the race, and BE THE SOLUTION!!!

Please share all #GAVPAASTEM posts and hashtags with others and encourage families of the Riverside County community to enroll their students NOW!!!
