ANTIRACISM COMMITMENT

CWS CALL TO ACTION

We, the Cincinnati Waldorf School, recognize our profound obligation to speak out in support of justice and healing in our nation. We, the Cincinnati Waldorf School, assert that the most powerful lens through which to examine injustice and inequity in our nation is that of racism and white supremacy. Though our mission speaks to the education of our beloved student body, we recognize that our mission is betrayed when we fail to meaningfully confront and examine a world marked by racial injustice.

OUR VISION

We believe the Cincinnati Waldorf School has a profound obligation to support healing and justice in our nation and the world. We believe the most powerful lens through which to examine injustice and inequity in our school is that of racism and white supremacy.
