It has been made extremely obvious to the student body of CGPS that our institution has allowed for derogatory language and actions to take place without sufficient consequences. Unfortunately, generations of students can attest that we have not felt comfortable bringing other similar incidents to the administration. In addition to feeling unable to take action, many students and faculty of color have felt unwelcome and ignored due to the lack of repercussions for students who make harmful statements.  We strongly believe that these preventative measures be taken: 

 1. Incorporating, facilitating, and encouraging mandatory conversations about race for all Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School students.
2. Mandatory bias training for ALL parents, staff, faculty, and administrators
3. Incorporating mandatory ethnic studies into all areas of studies of the curriculum (Black, Indigenous, Asian, Hispanic, etc.).
4. Establishing a process, which includes the voices of student leaders, that holds peers, faculty, and staff accountable for incidents of derogatory comments and actions. Additionally, implementing official documentation of all incidents of hate/bias in our community that can be made public to students, parents, faculty, and staff while keeping the identities of all parties involved concealed. 
5. Ensuring the protection of students, faculty, and staff who vocally protect and advocate for the POC community.

Please sign this petition in support of creating a culture at CGPS where we can hold each other accountable. If you have any questions or concerns, please voice them here: https://forms.gle/aa6NZbeYak9R32En7
