    Atwater STEAM Elementary: Stance on Social Justice

    In light of the many events of the past year (years), the loss of life, and the horrific scenes of brutality and violence many of us have witnessed either on the news or through social media, I ask: What is Social Justice?

    Social justice is [defined as] the view that everyone deserves equal economic, political and social rights and opportunities.”

    Historically, the idea of social justice is that all people should have equal access to wealth, health, justice, privileges, and opportunities regardless of their legal, political, economic, or other status. Social justice is a topic that some people may find uncomfortable. By surfacing issues like race, gender, and income, we begin to have an honest conversation about the state of affairs in our country; although it is understandable that these topics make it is easy for people to become defensive and resistant to change.

    That Atwater STEAM Elementary staff firmly believe in promoting the idea of social justice—it is part of our STEAM vision.  We are committed to support instruction and conversations that promote Diversity, Equality and the creation of a more just society. We stand against Racism. We stand against Inequality. We stand against Institutionalized Systems of Oppression. These are causes that can no longer be ignored.

    We will stand strong with our community in our resolve to fight these injustices. Social justice isn’t just a cause; it’s a celebration of the Greatness and Diversity of our country and our society.
