The Hillsborough community also participated in last year's National Day of Racial Healing. In addition to this student-organized library event, the Hillsborough Township Committee passed a resolution condemning racism and bigotry in their community. Hillsborough High School students Kaitlyn Dundorf (graduating 2020) and Alec Ruiter (graduating 2023) had proposed the resolution to the Township Committee and were in attendance at the committee meeting to accept the proclamation from municipal officials.

Mayor Doug Tomson honored Hillsborough High School students for their work to become advocates for this movement as well as their impact on the community. “The Hillsborough Township Committee applauds the students of Hillsborough Township for their commitment to racial healing, and urges all citizens to promote racial healing and transformation in the ways that are best suited for them individually, as a means to working together to ensure the best quality of life for every child,” Tomson said. Source: National movement for racial equality recognized by Hillsborough officials


About the Hillsborough Student Diversity Initiative

Student Diversity Initiative is a group of Hillsborough high school students committed to promote discussion, education, and awareness of diversity issues to make lasting changes at their school and the New Jersey Community. Their goal is to cultivate community conversations at a systemic level to shift perspectives and to challenge prejudice in the community. They meet weekly after school at Hillsborough High School (but currently virtually) to discuss action plans on diversity issues as well as initiating conversations and events for administrators, teachers, and fellow students on racial unity, social justice, gender equality, and other related topics. 


About the National Day of Racial Healing

The National Day of Racial Healing is a time for contemplation and collective action on #HowWeHeal from the effects of racism. Launched on Jan. 17, 2017, and supported by the  W.K. Kellogg Foundation, it is an opportunity to bring ALL people together in their common humanity and inspire collective action to create a more just and equitable world. As we enter 2021, truth-telling, strong relationships, collaboration and collective purpose will be as important as ever.
