WEAC member E-Ben Grisby ‘is not afraid to speak up where there is injustice’

Green Bay teacher E-Ben Grisby, an active member of WEAC and the Green Bay Education Association, is the subject of an Appleton Post-Crescent article about his work to “embrace the broad spectrum of diversity in the Fox Cities.”

“E-Ben’s life has been rich with experiences, which he readily shares with us, which give us perspective,” said Jody Harrell, who serves with Grisby at Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities. “He is not afraid to speak up where there is injustice and is willing to do something to help change happen. We appreciate his gifts, and all benefit from his wisdom and actions.”

Grisby, a special education teacher at Green Bay West High School who lives in Appleton, regularly attends WEAC events, and serves as Vice-Chair of the WEAC Human and Civil Rights Committee. At GBEA, he is an Executive Board Member at Large and serves on the Internal Communication Committee.

According to the Post-Crescent article:

Celebrate Diversity works with local school districts, government agencies and police departments, provides book talks at the public library and hosts celebrations such as a community picnic.

“We work in partnership with other groups and let you know we are there to work alongside other groups to make sure this is a much more livable community in the Fox Cities,” said Grisby.
