Hope Partnership for Education stands in solidarity with all those who are seeking a more just and equitable society. 
We mourn the countless victims of our country’s pervasive racist systems. 
We believe that as an organization, we have the responsibility and opportunity to demonstrate that Black Lives Matter.
At this extraordinary moment, our service and partnership with middle school students, alumni, and adults in North Philadelphia informs our vision of the magnitude of inequality and discrimination.  Relentlessly challenged by our mission of Empowerment through Education and our core values of Academic Excellence, Respect, Hospitality, Compassion, Joy, and Hope, we recommit to service characterized by these values. 
We also recognize our obligation as an organization and as individuals to evaluate and share our perspective with all of our supporters and other listeners in ways that will further educate and engage them in the continuous struggle for equity and justice.
