Equity and Justice Forum

The Objective of the Equity and Justice Forum

The Equity and Justice Forum (EJF) is charged with providing a space and place for listening, dialogue, and greater understanding about race and racism in our country, especially ideas for dealing with current challenges and planning for a better future; and serves as a catalyst for bridging differences regarding race in America, promoting reconciliation, and encouraging fresh perspectives. 

As we educate our students on issues of social injustices and inequities, we must recommit ourselves to promoting a society where all have the possibility of life, liberty, and justice. Build it Better also describes our commitment to a spirit of continuous improvement.  We have used this working body to review our programming, practices, and operations as well as our language, communications, and intentions as we made plans for a fall re-entry on our campuses.

The Frances Xavier Warde seeks to be the model of a diverse and inclusive school community, the paradigm for Catholic education in Chicago, and the standard for faith-based independent school education

We realize this vision through proactive and intentional efforts to identify and implement best practices, adapting to the ever-changing circumstances in education, and by adopting a spirit of continuous improvement – all for the benefit of our life-long learners.
