About the Equity Committee

The Adams PTA Equity Committee Mission is to strengthen our Adams community, inclusive of our differences, so that everyone thrives.

 

We approach this work to foster equity and inclusion of all Adams families, inclusive, but not limited to race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and ability by:

  • Seeking out the diverse voices of our Adams community

  • Growing awareness of barriers and disparities that exist within our local and broader community

  • Valuing differences and similarities among us

  • Developing meaningful actions based upon our knowledge

  • Building community and awareness through special projects addressing disparity

  • Cultivating open and respectful dialogue around issues of equity

  • Educating families on topics specific to equity

  • Showing leadership in self-reflection

  • Developing communications and practices that are inclusive and accessible

  • Influencing PTA policies and practices to support and represent all Adams families

  • Providing Adams families tools for advocacy
