YOU did it!

Thanks to the generous sponsorships and donations for Touro University California’s inaugural Planting Seeds For The Future fundraising event on June 9, 2016, we have helped secure funds for diversity scholarships available to our graduate students!

The Diversity Scholarship Award, charitably supported by the contributions of many individuals, local businesses, and organizations, promotes diversity within the Touro campus. We encourage recipients to contribute to the campus learning environment and share their experiences and perspectives through a diverse student body.

The initiative for a Diversity Scholarship, created in 2016, helps to build and sustain an inclusive graduate community at Touro University California and is essential in enhancing the quality of an intellectual environment for all students and faculty.

Mare Island 21ers

The fundraising event also provided an opportunity to recognize the efforts and contributions of the Mare Island 21ers, who helped end racial inequality in the workplace.

In 1961, a group of African American workers sparked a battle for civil rights. These gentlemen, called the Mare Island 21ers, stood up against racial injustice at the Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, Ca. After mailing a racial discrimination complaint to President John F. Kennedy’s Committee on Equal Job Opportunities in Washington DC, they received comparable wages and equal workforce treatment in the workplace.

On June 9th, Touro University California presented the Living History Award to the surviving four members of the 21ers: Louis Greer, James Davis, Clarence Williams, and Jake Sloan. They are a legacy of courage and activism on Mare Island!
