Dobbs Ferry High School Racial and Social Justice Club

Dobbs Ferry High School Racial and Social Justice Club
The High School Racial and Social Justice Club creates a space for students to have active discussions about the prevailing racism in the community and beyond. This club allows open-minded students to practice the IB learner profile traits, such as principled, communicators, and thinkers. 

By forming this club, students believe that they can create a more inclusive environment within the school and community. 
 

Goals of the club include: 

  • Implement discussions about white privilege and racism in our community.

  • Study reading materials for purposes of education on race and social justice issues

  • Explore the meaning of "whiteness".

  • Education about white privilege.

  • Help our school become more aware of racism outside of the Dobbs Ferry community. 

  • Work with the BIPOC Student Union

  • Discuss how minority groups, such as the LGBTQIA+ community, are oppressed.

  • Learn how to be true allies
