FCCS NEWSLETTER BANNER (Blog Banner)_edited.jpg

Dear Friends and Partners,


We would like to thank all of our guests and sponsors who helped make Dr. Fuller's 60 Years of Service Celebration a night to remember and for the love and appreciation you showed our founder. We are grateful and humbled by the evening’s success. Because of your support, we more than doubled our fundraising goal! Check out a few highlights from the evening here. You can also watch Dr. Howard Fuller's tribute video, featuring a chorus of voices from across the country recognizing Dr. Fuller’s contributions as a community organizer, mentor, friend, and civil rights advocate. 


  • Shout out to the Milwaukee Coalition - including FCCS Founder, Dr. Howard Fuller, and FCCS Board Member, Daiana Lambrecht - for your leadership and perseverance in striving towards funding equity for all Wisconsin students! 



  • Our partners in Connecticut finished this legislative session with significant wins for all public school students including a historic investment in education and a diverse teacher-educator program, approval of two new charter schools, and more. Despite strong community demand and support from coalition partners and legislators, funding for Capital Prep Middletown charter school was cut from the budget. Head of Capital Prep Schools and FCCS Board Chair, Dr. Steve Perry, will keep fighting to ensure Middletown families have access to equitable, high-quality public school options. 



More than ever, we must maximize every opportunity to prepare our Black and brown students to excel through access to high-quality public schools. Public charter schools run by leaders of color are a lifeline to success for kids of color, creating communities where all kids, regardless of their skin color or socioeconomic status, benefit.
