The Masters School and Rye Country Day School will host a Saturday Summit on Social Justice (SSSJ) at The Masters School from 9:30 AM to 7:00 PM on October 28. The event is open to local independent school students in grades 8-12, faculty and administrators.
The summit will enable local independent school communities to come together for exciting, meaningful and empowering dialogue about subjects ranging from equity and inclusion to identity and the importance of activism. Further details, including the student and adult workshops being offered at the SSSJ, are available here.
Cometry will be the edutainment artist at the event. Voted best diversity artist by Campus Magazine, the Cometry performance highlights the similarities, habits and traits that we all share, but often go unnoticed. This duo inspires others to find a deeper appreciation of equity, inclusion and the true meaning of diversity.
All participating schools must make arrangements for student transportation and students must be accompanied by an adult chaperone. Workshops will be facilitated by trained student diversity leaders and/or designated faculty member(s).
Registration will open on Friday, September 22. The registration fee is $30 per student, faculty or administrator.
