July 19-21, 2020
This virtual summit will take place over Zoom, with the exception of the Walk for the Lives of Black Women. All alums, current parents, students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend.
The Agnes Irwin Summit on Racial Justice has been designed based on feedback we have received to serve as an initial step in the important work of collectively committing as an entire school to the work of reconciling our past, healing our present, and planning for our future. This virtual community event has been crafted to allow meaningful listening and discussion to take place so that all of our voices are heard. We invite you to register for the events below that are specific to your role in our school to ensure that we can hear from as many members of our community as possible. Please know that all sessions will be recorded and shared more broadly with the community, with the exception of the Affinity Group sessions, and we will provide additional opportunities for you to share ideas about all the topics explored during the Summit. Learn more about this event.
The Summit will culminate in a Rally & Walk for The Lives of Black Women planned and hosted by our current upper and middle school students. We invite current students, families and local alum to join us in this event; registration is required and all local guidelines for safety, including wearing masks, will be expected. Those members of our community who wish to support and represent other constituent groups, or cannot attend in person, are invited to walk with us in your own communities and share photos or videos of your walk with us.
