CHS Parent & Caregiver Equity Group 

Welcome! We invite you to attend our second Monday of the month gatherings in celebration of the strength and resilience of our racially and ethnically diverse communities. By offering a space for meaningful conversation and engagement, we hope to build a broad, inclusive culture of inquiry empowered by the foundation of racial equity. 

Our monthly meetings include CHS parents, caregivers, local community members, students, teachers, administrators, school & district staff, and CHS  middle school cluster families.  

Past meetings have featured impactful presentations from CHS Student Affinity Groups sharing:

We are grateful to the CHS Administration team of Jo Ann Wadkins, Sean Murray, and Danielle Cota for their on-going commitment to multifaceted equity work and generously giving their time to participate in our meetings despite many demands and long hours. 

Special thanks to the founding members and all those since who show up month after month opening the space, embracing the discomfort, and keeping the light on.

Mission Statement 

The Cleveland High School Parent Equity Group strives to create community bound by a commitment to antiracism, to interrupt all forms of oppression and to examine our own biases and privilege. We are families and caregivers dedicated to listening to the diverse voices and perspectives of students, teachers, and administrators and to understanding the complex ways that systemic racism creates harm and inequity. 

We aim to partner with the school administration and the broader community to advance antiracist and inclusive policies and to support students and families of color as well as other underserved groups. Our goal is to center racially and ethnically diverse perspectives and to celebrate the strength and resilience of our communities and to see the translation of these values into classroom practice and in the curriculum. By offering a space for conversation and engagement, we hope to build a broad, inclusive culture of inquiry built on a foundation of racial equity. 


Please email us with any questions or ideas.  

We'd love to hear from you!
