On Valentine's Day, the DAAS Racial Climate Task Force announced an ambitious fundraising campaign to "show love for our future students"! The group made up of faculty and staff invited members of the DAAS community to raise $25,000 for the LEAD Scholars Program of the UM Alumni Association by the end of winter term. Participation is voluntary. Those interested in giving can visit the Give Like a Victor website and choose "Give to the LEAD Scholars Program." Donors should then select the "LEAD Scholars General Fund," check out as a "Guest," and write in the check-out comment box: "in honor of the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies."
