As a response to the events at NEHS last week, and in an ongoing effort to foster student body unity, the students at NEHS have organized a "Stand Against Bigotry" day for Thursday, March 5th. The organization of the event has been led by 9th grade students who ask that students, staff, and community members all over wear green to symbolize a unified stance against hate and ignorance in all of its forms. The event is meant to create a visual reminder of a common effort to continue to grow and learn, and has been organized in the spirit of a grassroots movement toward positive social change. Students understand that ignorance fosters fear and distrust; this one day is meant to be a school-wide beginning to opening a dialogue between all students. Students have proven that they are willing to take the lead, meeting ignorance with education, and fighting tired bigotry with enthusiastic unity.
