During our assembly and learning on June 3, our community came together in solidarity against racism and intolerance. Elmwood is committed to creating a safe, inclusive and open environment for our students, faculty, alumnae and community where we can share knowledge and experience, meet in thoughtful conversation, and provide meaningful opportunities for all so that together we become agents of change against racism today, tomorrow and in the future. Below are resources that will help guide us in understanding and knowledge. Image by Jane Mount, illustrator of the Ideal Bookshelf series featuring anti-racism books.
