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.
