Please donate to IGE

The Institute for Global Education stands for peace and justice here in Grand Rapids. Please make a donation to keep the Institute for Global Education moving forward.

Every penny goes towards stopping attacks on women, immigrants, unions, African Americans and other oppressed peoples. IGE marched at the airport against Muslim ban. IGE hosts the International Day of Peace where over 150 people participated. IGE supported our union bus drivers of ATU in the struggle to preserve pensions, keep health care benefits, and win a good contract here at the Rapid. IGE rallies and protests against putting children in cages, and taking babies from their parents at the border to ship them to Bethany Christian Services here in Grand Rapids. IGE supported the Young Lords 50 Years Conference in Chicago. IGE has participated in Day of the Dead, Mandela Day, and many other efforts. Together we can build strong movements.

Please donate now! We need your donation more than ever.

Benefit for Chester Lowe

BENEFIT FOR CHESTER LOWE!

We are hosting a benefit to cover Chester Lowe’s medical expenses in his fight against blood cancer–multiple myeloma. Chester must now take 31 medications and maintain a C-PAP machine. Chemo treatments can take a year or longer, with monthly hospitalizations. Fortunately, his vital signs are improving, but this will be a difficult fight. We need your help to raise the money Chester needs to live longer.
