About

Who we are

We are primarily a group of 190+ motivated parents and community members, bonded by a need to teach our children how to be global citizens who value the wholeness of a person's being, regardless of race, class, gender, religion, ability, etc.


We want our school, district and community to be a safe, caring and mutually respectful environment where all students are honored and valued for their diverse cultural backgrounds, unique strengths and diverse abilities.


We use our influence to support, guide and inform about issues of belonging, diversity and inclusion at Campolindo High School and within the Lamorinda community.
