The Social Justice Fund for Ventura County (SJFVC) has decided to make a change,
directing our grant campaign to a specific social justice issue, or problem.

For 2017, our focus will be on "implicit bias in education".

2017 Campaign "Implicit Bias in Education" 

 

Implicit bias can have different meanings for different groups, but the common thread will be a perceived implicit or unconscious bias experienced by a group within the public school/s in Ventura County.

 

The implicit bias may affect the quality and / or equity of the educational experience that a group or individual encounters.  The effects may be multifold including the creation of artificial limitations, including future aspirations, continuing education and eventually income. These biases may be based on racial, economic, gender, sexual orientation or other factors.
