As co-founder and co-CEO of Re-Imagine Education Inc., Keith Streicher leads a team of 16 people who work to increase retention and recruitment of Black and brown teachers and bridge the literacy gap in Black and brown youth. Streicher currently serves on the board of directors at Outpost Natural Foods and the board of trustees at Milwaukee’s Finest Scholarship Foundation.
“Keith Streicher is a trailblazer and maverick,” said Isiah King, co-founder of Re-Imagine Education.
Streicher served on an LGBT panel with U.S. Congressman Mark Takano at the 2014 Victory Fund Institute International LGBT Conference and was named a rising black LGBT leader by the National Black Justice Coalition in 2015.
He is also the director of Veterans Upward Bound at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he works to ensure marginalized groups have a voice. He is a mentor to the 125 Veterans Upward Bound students and implemented its “A Seat at the Table” initiative, mentoring and encouraging staff and colleagues to become more active in their community.
Re-Imagine Education was one of four Milwaukee-area organizations that recently received grant funding through the Jrue & Lauren Holiday Social Impact Fund.
