Social Justice & Antiracism Resources

Mark Day School stands in solidarity with Black communities to actively recognize, condemn, and protest the racial inequity in our country. We as a community--with families and the school in partnership--remain committed to educate, listen, and engage actively in anti-racism work.    

As educators, it is our responsibility to teach, practice, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. It is our responsibility to educate every Mark Day student, in developmentally appropriate ways, about both what makes our nation great and the systemic inequities that exist, and that must be acknowledged and rooted out. 

Nurturing in our children the habits of mind and personhood to be the best citizens they can be means that they are equipped to lead in seeing and addressing inequity where it exists, and working toward racial equity and social justice.

We understand that families' and individuals' experience and comfort level with addressing race and racism varies. Please review the recommended resources before sharing them with your children.

If you and your family choose to read, listen, or discuss any of the resources below, we want to know! Email Fernanda Pernambuco about the work you've been doing this summer.

**If your family is at the beginning of this journey, you may want to start with these resources.
