About Us

FACES was started by three white Seattle Public Schools parents who met through involvement in the Southeast Seattle Education Coalition (SESEC).

We organize for racial equity in Seattle schools by harnessing the collective power of families and communities. Our top priority is to ensure funds raised by parents and caregivers are distributed to schools in a racially equitable way that helps close the opportunity gap for our city’s young people.
