EBGIS Statement Against Racial Injustice
We condemn all forms of racism and violence. The killing of George Floyd and so many others, and the countless acts of police brutality and racism against African Americans leave us devastated and heartbroken. We share the pain, frustration and outrage of the African American community. We honor the inspiring response from communities of color and all who have risen up to defend equality and human dignity.
At EBGIS, we view these events as a call to action. As a starting point, we reaffirm our core community values of equality, empathy and mutual respect. Moving forward, we pledge to continue asking how we as a school can contribute to the realization of justice and racial equality in our community. As educators, we recognize that our students will help shape the future of society and strive to equip them to build a society based on equality, respect and mutual understanding.
