  • Chelsea Harper Memorial Fund for Restorative Justice at Sabin School

    Chelsea Harper

    Chelsea Harper was essential in bringing Restorative Justice (RJ) practices to Sabin School. She spoke up for social justice and racial equity, and was a living model of how to address white privilege. Chelsea believed in the power of communication and accountability in our school community, both for adults and children. She spoke out about racial disparities in discipline, and the academic achievement gap between white students and students of color, and she actively sought solutions. Chelsea deeply wanted every child in our community to feel welcome, regardless of their skin color or background, and to have tools to help them work through social conflicts, build authentic relationships and feel empowered in taking learning risks.

    In 2016-2017 Restorative Justice coaches supported Sabin teachers in holding daily community building circles.  In 2017-2018 coaches will continue to support classroom teachers with community circles, as well as support students in advocating for their social-emotional needs.

    Chelsea was a dance movement therapist, counselor, author, and extraordinary mom to Eva Doherty. In May 2017, Chelsea died from complications due to Metastatic Breast Cancer. Her bridge building lives on in the Chelsea Harper Memorial Restorative Justice Fund.  Thank you for continuing Chelsea’s legacy by supporting RJ at Sabin. She is greatly loved by her community!
