Guided by an advisor, Sitara Herur-Halbert, who is also a member of the school's DEI Core Committee, Secondary students lead active clubs that focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. Club leaders stand behind their motto, "If you're not uncomfortable, you're not learning," as they work with maturity to confront the challenges facing themselves, classmates and our society.
Club members are active leaders in developing programs for the Secondary School, including:
- Workshops on race relations, immigration, (dis)ability, gender and women's rights for students at all grade levels in Secondary,
- Mental health awareness and destigmatization, through trainings, workshops, and zines
- LBGT Day of Silence, OUT for Safe Schools training for faculty and staff,
- Black Lives Matter community action
- Annual trips to student leadership conferences, including NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference and the Dalton Diversity Conference
- Cultural Center programming.
- They also publish a monthly newsletter, covering topics from the Black Lives Matter movement to intersectionality in our everyday lives.
Student activities are organized in an umbrella organization, The Coalition, which meets regularly to steer the work of individual clubs and affinity groups, which include:
