Lesley Ellis Stands With AAPI Community

In the wake of the shootings in Atlanta this week, we at Lesley Ellis School and Schools for Children, join the many other organizations that are expressing their sympathy for the victims, their outrage and, as educators, their responsibility to address the root causes of injustice. This requires our vigilance, our self-reflection and our agency. Hate can germinate even in the most seemingly.
Our school values diversity, inclusion and equity. This requires a close attentiveness to what we teach, how we teach, and how we continue to foster an inclusive school climate and culture.
We stand in solidarity and grief with the AAPI community, and we reaffirm our commitment to equity, inclusiveness, respect, and dignity for all.
