Every spring the entire LWHS community participates in an in-house conference that explores identity, privilege, and oppression planned by students who have attended the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference, the White Privilege Conference or the Creating Change Conference.
Workshops are led by faculty, staff, students and local facilitators or activists. Past session topics have included microaggressions, how ideas about gender impact politics, different belief systems, orientalism, and rap as activism, to name a few. While it can be challenging to explore the cycle of oppression, the Sam Mihara Day of Justice ultimately aims to inspire compassion and a commitment to equity within all LWHS community members.
