The Folk Education Association of America and its Folk School Alliance project have entered a new era of work, that of direct support of community action. This work began in 2020 with the Leading from the Roots grant which allowed the FEAA to bring more than $40,000 of action research grant funding into communities in the mostly rural Pacific Mountain region of Southwestern Washington. In 2021, the Leading from the Roots grant expanded to 9 more folk school communities bringing nearly $10,000 in action research grant funding support to each school while they navigated the challenges of COVID-19 and more. Please visit our Projects page for more information on these action research projects.
Your support in continuing and expanding this work will strengthen local communities and empower ordinary folks to address issues impacting their communities.
