The Park School of Baltimore’s Anti-Racism Action Plan

Today, Head of School Dan Paradis and Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Courtney Rollins sent an email to the Park community sharing the release of the school’s Anti-Racism Action Plan. In their message, Dan and Courtney make clear that, “words are not enough. We embrace truth, optimism, and the belief that, together as a united community, we will make lasting change. Further, we disavow apathy, passivity, and denial. We welcome support, illumination, discomfort, and criticism. We invite, and expect, your committed engagement in the work ahead.”

I believe each of us has a role to play in creating a community where every child feels known, valued, and loved. For me, I can’t separate my personal feelings — as a fellow human being, as a parent of a young Park graduate, as someone whose friends and loved ones are impacted by racism — with my responsibilities as Head of School. As I love and care about my own child, how can I not love and care about each and every child whose wellbeing is entrusted to me and to all of us adults at Park? — Dan Paradis
