Building Equity Bridges

“The worst thing you can do for a student is to lose a student -- and you’ve lost many students over the years. So do better.” -- CRLS Black Student Union, “Cambridge’s Minority Reports, Volume 3”

The Building Equity Bridges project is dedicated to authentically engaging those affected by entrenched systems of oppression such as racism, to build collective understanding of the lived experiences of our young people, families, and staff, and develop recommendations towards removing barriers to college and career success.

“Our students are telling us about painful experiences with endemic racism and oppression throughout their time in our schools.”
-- Column: Cambridge Educators Are Organizing For Justice

“The work we are doing in Cambridge around implicit bias and anti-racist practices is difficult, personal work. It is incumbent upon us, the adults in the community, to make sure that our students know that they are seen, heard, believed, and valued.”
-- Superintendent Salim, “When Cambridge Students Become the Teachers”
