Social Justice and Equity
We at Mountain Song are adding our voices to the human chorus across the country and globe calling for social justice and equity for people who have been systemically marginalized. It is time to break the persistent cycles of oppression existing in our social structures that disadvantage, threaten, and take the lives of our brothers and sisters of color.
The systems of social and institutional inequities woven into our society are well studied and articulated. They have intensified even further during the COVID-19 crisis to a breaking point that people throughout the world are loudly crying out that they’ve simply had enough. Enough.
From its beginnings, Waldorf education has been predicated on social and cultural renewal, and this is as relevant now as it ever has been. Waldorf education and Mountain Song Community School hold the principles of human dignity and respect for life at their core. We believe that diversity, inclusivity, and equity are both moral and educational imperatives.
Mountain Song is committed to elevating the voices of those who are and have been marginalized, to changing the course of inequities, and to breaking down structural prejudice in all forms where it exists. We recognize that this is an imperfect journey of growth, and that to progress, we must confront blind spots and biases in order to more fully commit ourselves to elevating one another. We embrace this transformative work.
