I’m signing because educating our kids on racial injustice is critical in raising the next generation of open minded citizens.

Change is needed. As NH alumni class ‘83 I applaud your efforts. Extend this education to parents as well. Home and school and local government.

Thanks for adding your voice.

For all the excellent education I received at NH (and was truly exceptional), themes on racial justice were conspicuously absent. I know that the talented faculty and staff can live up to the details of this call to action, and I am glad this issue has been raised. (KT, '94)

Highlands must step up to both support it's students of color and educate it's majority-privileged student body of the legacies of blatant and institutional racism in this country that benefit them. Highlands strives to prepare it's students to become leaders, but what good are leaders if they can't advocate for justice or empower others? I was raised in New Jersey but it took attending college in Alabama of all places for me to truly understand the centuries of trauma soaked into our nation's history.
