Statement supporting Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders

University School of Nashville shared the following message on March 18, 2021.
As instances of racism, harassment, and violence against Asian,
Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities continue to rise, University School of Nashville denounces these actions and reiterates its commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. We support the AAPI community within the PDS/USN community, across the nation, and especially in Atlanta.

Here’s how you can support USN’s Asian American and Pacific Islander students, faculty, and families: 
  • Support or join our Asian Affinity Group to give Asian-identifying students a safe space to discuss issues that pertain to their shared identities and a support system within our hallways
  • Read, share, and continue the conversation surrounding the school’s inaugural DEI Report 
  • Educate yourself and your children on the history of discrimination against the AAPI community as our faculty continue to review curriculum to ensure it accurately represents historical racism, includes diverse narratives and authors, encourages students to embrace and celebrate their identities and those of their classmates
  • Report incidents using USN’s Bias Reporting Form or to Stop AAPI Hate
  • Reflect USN’s Guiding Principles, not just at school but also within the Nashville community, by supporting local AAPI businesses, speaking out against injustice, and being change leaders and responsible citizens
