Cathedral High School Walkout

A Peacemaking Project by Kendrick M.

What is the injustice we are solving?

I want to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship.

Hi Kendrick,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

The next step for your project -- so that we can help get you some funding! -- is to share your Compassionate Insight by Feb 28. You can do that on your project dashboard!

Kendrick, thanks for posting this. I think you're right that inaction by those in power is a terrible injustice - and thanks for raising your hand to push back.

How is the organizing going? What can we help with?
