White Center Heights Teachers, Staff to participate in Black Lives Matter Oct. 19


Upwards of 60 White Center Heights Elementary School staff plan to participate in the Oct. 19 #BlackLivesMatterAtSchool action by wearing Black Lives Matter shirts to school “to address institutionalized racism in our schools and offer a space for dialogue among school staff.”

The action – which is also taking place in schools across Seattle – demonstrates that educators across the city stand together with the community of John Muir Elementary, which received racist threats in response to their planned Black Men United to Change the Narrative event last month.

“White Center Heights staff members are hoping to spark a larger conversation in our classrooms, across our community and the Highline School District at large,” reads an announcement.

White Center Heights is located at 10015 6th Ave SW.

    Hi, will there be an area for neighbors & allies to come show their support? We’d love to come wearing #BLM shirts, but want to ensure we’re not violating any school/property rules.
