Welcome to the
District Unity Council
It is our hope to facilitate brave conversations related to various social justice issues to foster education and inclusivity in our Dover community.
The Unity Council meets on the first Thursday of each month from 6:00-8:00pm. For more information on how to become involved please contact Nicole Assi, District Social Worker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Break the cycle; equity for all!
Our mission is to contribute to the dismantling of oppressive systems that have existed in our culture for generations. It is our responsibility to ensure our entire community feels safe, valued, and respected. We have no tolerance for hate or discrimination. Each person should feel accepted regardless of skin color, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, economic status, sexual orientation, or any other component of identity.
The Dover Area School District has a history of celebrating that we are Dover PROUD. This means that we Persevere in the face of adversity, demonstrate Respect in all interactions, take Ownership for ourselves, value Unity as an inclusive community, and are Dedicated to making ourselves and our community the best it can be. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once stated, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” We are better when we stand together, and together we will rise.
