Holy Names Academy Studies Anti-Racism

Return to news

Two weeks ago, Holy Names Academy students, faculty, staff and the Board of Trustees welcomed speaker Alison Park of Blink Consulting to talk about what it means to be anti-racist in 2020. Alison first addressed the student body in a virtual, all-school assembly titled “Anti-racism starts with calling ourselves in.”

She continued the presentation that afternoon with HNA faculty and staff, and led the Board of Trustees retreat on Saturday. Alison’s talks invited all community stakeholders to take active roles in the anti-racism campaign by examining personal behaviors, beliefs and biases and by engaging others in conversations about theirs.
