We Are Not Complicit
The horrific killing of eight people, six of them Asian-American women, in metro Atlanta last week has left me and many of those in our school community heartbroken and outraged. These acts of violence and aggression are always shocking, no matter how often they take place.
Springmont condemns the ongoing gender-based and anti-Asian violence in our country and is fully committed to living our Statement of Diversity and Inclusivity each day. We hold ourselves accountable through our words and actions, and we teach our students to honor and respect one another, regardless of identity and background. As we mourn the loss of lives, we renew our commitment to educating children with anti-bias, anti-racist practices and encourage everyone in our community to consider diverse perspectives and to develop a proper regard for all people.
At Springmont, diversity is embraced and woven into the fabric of our school community. We look forward to the day when every member of our nation’s society can go to bed with their humanity fully intact.
