October 22, 2018 Press Release-For Immediate Release
Generations Against Bullying (GAB)
Greendale High School (GHS) On Racial Matters at GHS
The recent news concerning the racial climate at Greendale High School has resulted Generations Against Bullying (GAB) receiving inquiries and has prompted us to make a statement.
GAB’s anti-bully Peer Ambassador Upstander Program has been active at Greendale High School for more than five years. This Program has grown from a small group of ten students to having 240 students who have been through the program in the last five years. This Peer Ambassador Program has always had a diverse makeup with members of all genders, races, ethnicities, and religions. Racism in general is a topic that we discuss frequently at our monthly meetings because of the many problems it has caused in the region, State, and Country.
While we have not been told of significant racial tensions over the years we have spent working with Greendale High School students, part of GAB’S mission is to educate our children and communities concerning the importance of love, acceptance and cooperation. We will continue with the Peer Ambassadors to further this work and hope to be part of the conversation on cultural competence that is underway in Greendale Schools
