Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

 

In the Spring of 2020, we knew it was important to share with our community more explicitly how we incorporate our Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (JEDI) work into our program, across all subjects and throughout the year. Hence the birth of the MPFS JEDI Task Force, made up of teachers, families, administration, and trustees. 

JEDI Task force goals

Our JEDI goals, broadly outlined, are to foster positive identities (racial, gender, religion, sexuality, family structure, class & ability) in our students, staff, families, and trustees, and encourage their personal development by:

  • raising awareness and building literacy by engaging in explicit conversations about our identities
  • honoring the intersectionality that exists within ourselves and members of our community, thus increasing our capacity for empathy
  • encouraging our community to take action when they see injustice, prejudice, and bigotry in the world.

We understand this work is dynamic and ongoing, and will require us to continue to learn and grow.

Get Involved & Support

Thank you to the SNAVE Foundation for the generous grant that helped to fund a number of JEDI initiatives in the 2022 and 2023 school years.
