In the wake of the recent tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, we’ve learned firsthand about the power of student-led activism as survivors effectively use their voices to inspire a nationwide call to action. While most high school students are not old enough to vote in November elections, all have a voice that deserves to be heard! This event will be hosted by English Department Chairperson Ms. Donnelly, an experienced op-ed journalist whose writing has been featured in local and national publications. Learn how to use the persuasive writing skills you’ve learned in English class to share your views about ANY political issue of personal importance, and then send your letter to elected officials via e-mail or snail mail or submit your work as a Letter to the Editor at Newsday, The New York Times or any other publication.

NOTE: This event has been cancelled due to snow days. Stay tuned for a possible reschedule date.
