Laura's school is located in the heart of Oakland, ranked the 3rd most dangerous city in America in 2012. She works hard to provide her predominantly low-income minority students with a supportive environment that brings structure and a sense of normalcy to their stressful lives. Due to limited resources, Laura fundraises for basic classroom supplies and technology for her students, and single-handedly fundraised and put together the school's yearbook. The need in Oakland is huge. Laura and the teachers at EC Reems are making a real difference, but they need your support to reach more youth!
