Social Studies Department’s Anti-Racism Statement (Updated 9/9/20)
The Social Studies Department will continue to embrace our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practices to break the cycle of racism and other forms of oppression. Now, more than ever, we need to speak up, listen, talk with one another, take action, and effect change. In the Lexington Public Schools community, we all belong. We invite you to partner with us as active "upstanders" who shape history and create a more compassionate, humane world.
