CPI’S STATEMENT AFFIRMING THE POWER OF INCLUSION IN TODAY’S CLIMATE
As an educational organization, the Collaborative for Perpetual Innovation (CPI) feels compelled to express, in no uncertain terms, our stance on the climate of increasing division in our country. As expressed through our ongoing work in both public and private schools, CPI believes strongly in inclusivity and in the power of love. We believe that during times of conflict people can transcend differences through engagement with “the other” and a through a willingness to grapple honestly with the infinite complexity which makes America unique. As educators, we must continue to bravely confront hatred and bigotry; we must teach love and compassion while modeling relentless positivity. Building physical or metaphorical walls that divide and marginalize people based on their religious, racial, ethnic, and cultural groups, or on their political parties, genders, sexual orientation, or other real or perceived characteristics, leads to isolation, fear, intolerance, and weakness. Given our collective history of direct lineage to immigrants and refugees, we understand that the very fabric of our society is woven from multicolored threads, each one a story of seeking refuge in a hopeful, compassionate place. We must pull together to find a common purpose as we forge a future that works for all people.
As educators – and the founders of CPI – we commit our hearts, our energy, the work of our minds and of our hands to the promotion of a smarter, kinder world.
