The newest student organization at Falmouth Academy is the Students for Social Justice (SSJ). Responding to the sense of urgency to the Black Lives Matter movement in the spring of 2020, students felt a strong call to action to unite white ally students with students of color to actively engage together in understanding the systemic injustices both at the local and national level. The SSJ will have a democratically elected representative to the student council organization.

DEI Faculty Alliance
The DEI Faculty Alliance is a committed group of faculty and administrators with the shared goal of forwarding diversity, equity, and inclusion work at Falmouth Academy. Since its establishment in 2019 the DEI Faculty Alliance has been charged with examining the practices, programming, and policies of Falmouth Academy through the DEI lens, making yearly faculty professional development recommendations to the Academic Dean and Head of School, facilitating student advisory activities on topics including, but not limiting, racial literacy, implicit bias, and social identifiers.
Voices of color should be heard and can help educate white faculty and students alike, however, white privilege in America and how white people talk about race is the other half of the equation.
