Black Lives Matter

PEAK Parent Center stands in solidarity with the Black community. Inclusion, respect, social justice, and equity are core to our mission and values.  Please stand with PEAK. Take actions individually and collectively to address hidden biases and end racist thinking and violence. This moment in time requires everyone - including those of us who are not Black - to speak out, take a stand without compromising, and act with urgency to insist on ending behaviors that plague our country.
