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."
This Summer we welcomed Sterling Clinton-Spellman'02, to lead as the new Director of the Center for Peace, Equity and Justice Through Service. As a Lincoln alumna, she is excited to bring her energy and creativity back to Lincoln in this new role, using her background as an educator in adult and youth programs from a variety of communities and cultural backgrounds. She holds a B.A. in Communication Arts from The College of New Rochelle, and a Masters of Urban Education from Mercy College. Mrs. Clinton-Spellman will be providing support and resources to the Lincoln community in our planning and execution of Morgan Stone Day, International Women’s Day, our senior service projects, our annual Human Rights Film Festival and a host of other enriching programs.
