The World As It Could Be Enters a New Phase
A note from Sandy Sohcot:
Your commitment and involvement as supporters of and participants in The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program (TWAICB) has made it possible to advance the positive impact of our work. With this message I want to outline the next exciting phase of the Program, as I now transition out as Executive Director of the Rex Foundation to focus on TWAICB.
This past September, TWAICB was approved as a project of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Activities League of Alameda County (DSAL). DSAL is an organization I became familiar with several years ago when Hilary Sohcot Bass, my daughter, began working there to implement programs that build strong, healthy connections and opportunities for positive engagement for members of the Ashland Community, an unincorporated area of Alameda County. As you’ll see by visiting their website, DSAL has created and now administers outstanding programs, including an urban farm, soccer leagues and health education initiatives in partnership with county agencies, corporations, the school district, and other key collaborators. One partner, the San Lorenzo Unified School District, which includes Arroyo High School, has been a collaborator of TWAICB since 2007. DSAL has also participated in TWAICB by having youth leaders attend our 3-day Institute and by presenting TWAICB curriculum in community forums. Hilary is now the Executive Director of DSAL, adding a wonderful dimension to this collaboration.
