Center for Peace, Equity, & Justice through Service
Lincoln School formally opened the Center for Peace, Equity, and Justice through Service in 2007. The Center's mission and vision statements speak directly to the school's broader mission, emphasizing "a shared reverence for all individuals," an embrace of "the values of Lincoln School," as well as "practices that celebrate diversity, inspire service, and foster a culture of peace." The goal of The Center is to facilitate ongoing programs in the areas of diversity, service, and Quakerism, to promote new initiatives in these realms, and, above all, to help the school create "new models of inclusion."
Sterling Clinton-Spellman '02, is the Director of the Center for Peace, Equity and Justice through Service. As a Lincoln alumna, she brings her energy and creativity back to Lincoln in this role, using her background as an educator in adult and youth programs from a variety of communities and cultural backgrounds. Mrs. Clinton-Spellman provides support and resources to the Lincoln community for the planning and execution of Morgan Stone Day, International Women’s Day, the Senior Service Project, our annual Human Rights Film Festival and a host of other enriching programs.
"The Power of One: Be the change you want to see in the world." Students explored the idea of "The Power of One" as it related to their studies, as well as their personal lives. As a community, we explored people, places, and events throughout the world that have made a difference in the lives of others, either through the power of one voice, one place, one city, one state, one country, one continent or one world.
