In response to the recent events that have taken place around the murders and mistreatment of African Americans across the country:
East High School recognizes virtual efforts like Blackout Tuesday, in an attempt to reconnect with our respective communities after the devastating events that have taken place nationally. We also recognize that we need to use our platforms to reiterate that East High School is and will continue to be an anti-racist school and community. As a staff, we are currently developing what we feel to be the best plan of action to not only speak on or simply post about the injustices happening to African Americans, but how to best act on them. This is not an action statement but merely an update for our community. We stand against any and all forms of racism and discrimination and we look forward to the opportunity of showing you this rather than telling you. We ask for your patience and understanding as we attempt to assemble hundreds of thoughts and ideas and put forth actions.
Black Lives Matter at East.
