Fellowship for Race & Equity in Education (FREE) - Founder & CEO
Michelle Molitor is the founder and CEO of Fellowship for Race & Equity in Education (FREE), an organization with the mission of creating equitable educational spaces for all students through honest and open dialogue across difference, and collective anti-racist action. This equity work was built in response to the urgency for culturally responsive systemic change for our most vulnerable students—not just in DC, but nationwide. Collaborating directly with a number of national equity organizations to develop Race & Equity in Education Seminars, Michelle was awarded an investment from NewSchools Venture Fund in her first year as an Entrepreneur in Residence to continue developing the FREE curriculum. FREE has partnered with and led work alongside several national, regional and local education agencies across the education ecosystem including the Department of Education, district offices, individual schools, philanthropic groups, and education facing entities.
