Peirce FORJ (Families Organizing for Racial Justice) is comprised of a group of parents and educators who seek to promote cross-racial connection and racial justice within ourselves, our families, our communities (with a focus on the Peirce community), and the world at large.

Please view our Anti-Racism Actions and Resources guide for a comprehensive list of resources and actions. It is updated frequently, with a primary focus on local resources and opportunities.

In the past, we have organized multicultural nights, panels and parent workshops. For this year, we are working on an anti-racist read-aloud for kids, as well as another multicultural night. Details forthcoming. We are also partnering with other FORJ chapters to work on various citywide initiatives. For more information or to get involved, please contact Peirce’s FORJ coordinator, Lauren Dale. We hope you will join us for various events and initiatives this year, or consider joining our team!
