Community, Inclusion, and Equity
To the Gilman Community,
At Gilman, we believe that our community is strengthened by the vibrant exchange and courageous conversations that occur when individuals with different backgrounds, abilities, and heritages have the fortitude to share their various perspectives with one another. In the face of the racism and injustice that have perpetuated in our society for more than 400 years, we recognize that we have important work ahead of us. Part of our charge in preparing our boys to thrive in the world is ensuring that they are able to recognize injustice and build an anti-racist society. Silence is unacceptable, and so we ask you to join us in these efforts because now is the time for action. We understand that this is uncomfortable work. Now is the time to lean in to that discomfort, listen, and do what is right. Thank you for your continued support and engagement as, together, we each do our part to create an anti-racist culture at Gilman in which we can all feel safe and included, and that will serve as an example to our larger community.
