Alma del Mar Charter Schools publicly affirms our identity as an anti-racist organization. In pursuit of our mission we commit to model the world we wish to see by building a more just organization and fighting racism and colorism when we encounter them within and outside of our school walls.
At Alma we will work to ensure that students, families and staff of all races and ethnicities are welcomed, included, affirmed and celebrated.
Within the broader New Bedford community and beyond we will work to identify, discuss and challenge issues of racism and prejudice and the impact(s) they have on our scholars, their families and our staff.
We will strive to continuously learn about racism and its effects and actively challenge any inequities we may discover. Through this purposeful work to dismantle racism, we intend to gain a better understanding of ourselves so that our commitment is reflected in our day to day lives.
