Racist Incident Reporting
We know from the many painful social posts and direct messages about experiences at Taft – and from an extraordinary letter written and signed by many Taft alumni – that we need to do better and to engage in serious and long term anti-racist work at Taft. We are humbled by the number and strength of the voices we have heard from in the past weeks and the by the commitment, passion, and dedication of Taft students, alumni, and faculty to make Taft the best school it can possibly be for everyone in our community.
To our students and alumni of color: we see you, we hear you, we are listening and working on significant changes to make Taft a welcoming, safe, and healthy place for all students. Please keep writing, emailing, posting, and calling with suggestions, questions, criticism, and challenges. We want to hear from you. We are here to listen, learn, and to take action.
To that end, we ask you reach to out to Andrew Prince, Dean of Multicultural Education; Edie Traina, Dean of Faculty; Steve Palmer, Associate Dean of Faculty; or Rachel Jacobs, Director of Counseling. Alternatively, we have created a Racist Incident Reporting form that is available here: https://bit.ly/
