HOW DOES THE 15 WHITE COATS PLAN TO AFFECT CHANGE?
We intend to affect change by influencing the cultural imagery in K-12 classrooms nationwide, assisting medical school applicants of color to apply to medical school, and creating culturally adept literary and media content for the children of the future nationwide.
ARE YOU ALL PROFITING FROM THIS CAUSE?
The answer is a vehement NO. We intend to use 100% of the proceeds to support our cause. None of us are taking one penny of profit. This is truly for the future.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO EXECUTE THIS PLAN?
Every donation and purchase of merchandise allows us to accomplish three goals:
Put funds towards scholarships for students of color applying to medical school. Simply applying to medical school can cost over $3,000.We recognize this financial burden because we have personally experienced it, and want to help alleviate that cost.
Place framed and signed 15 White Coat photos in schools around the country to serve as an inspiration to our FUTURE PHYSICIANS. Our goal is #100KCopiesIn100KClassrooms.
Place culturally-aligned literature in learning spaces that tells the story of ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE from a perspective the children can identify with. The stories and journeys of people of color need to be told from our perspective.
