The Center for Justice, Peace and Global Citizenship

The Center for Justice, Peace, and Global Citizenship drives critical reflection and engagement on all matters pertaining to diversity, inclusion, justice, multiculturalism, and global citizenship at Lincoln. The Center empowers the Lincoln School community to make positive and sustainable change, to ask the “difficult questions”, to address implicit and explicit bias, and to do so with respect, regardless of ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.

The Center’s interconnected web of student clubs and program days that address topics like racial justice, privilege, feminism, and intersectionality, support this important work.

Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

Lincoln School values difference and honors a multiplicity of perspectives that includes, but is not limited to, age, religion, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, gender, physical ability, and family structure. We are committed to the Quaker values of equity, justice, peace, and community. These ideals are driven by an understanding that a socially conscious learner is an empowered one, one who engages in critical self reflection and honest action.

All members of the Lincoln School community—students, alumnae, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, and trustees—will honor, embrace, and empower difference and individuality as sources of strength.

It all started when Sofia, a Lincoln School Kindergartner, met an emigrant from Syria in the spring of 2016. Through this newfound friend, Sofia learned about the situation that Syrian refugee children and families face every day due to the massive, ongoing crisis in their home country. 

Sofia wanted to help, and there is nothing more powerful than a Lincoln girl on a mission.

At Lincoln, Today is Not Just a Day—It's A Movement

Today is International Day of the Girl, a day dedicated to helping girls everywhere to be seen as equals both in the eyes of others and in their own eyes. And while setting aside a particular day provides a rallying point around which to mobilize, when you're a part of an institution that puts girls first, the work is year round.
