A Message to Our Community

When the Princeton Adult School was born in the depths of the Depression in a town with segregated schools and exclusion, the Adult School’s founders were explicit that all its classes and services would be open to “…all members of the community regardless of race, creed, color, gender, or country of origin.” We stand in solidarity with the Black community and all communities of color and state our opposition to racism, police brutality and violence, and unequivocally support Black Lives Matter.

As we watch the protests unfold across the world, we feel the pain and anguish that communities of color have felt for years. We must all move forward in knowing that every individual and organization must take an active part in making the changes that will eradicate racism and discrimination in our community. But we must do more than just say we stand in solidarity; we must remember George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Aubrey and countless others and honor them and fight for them to bring change so their deaths were not in vain.

Princeton Adult School has always been a place where students have joined in discussing topics of wide-ranging significance, important subjects; we are committed to continue these dialogues to facilitate effective change.
