Students from Leadership and Public Service High School participated in the #Enough National School Walkout to “protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods.” Students were joined by Governor Andrew Cuomo and United Federation of Teachers president Michael Mulgrew, as well as the faculty and staff of their school. Members of Trinity Church Wall Street’s staff, including the Rev. Winnie Varghese, Director of Justice and Reconciliation, attended in solidarity with the students.
Trinity is committed to taking as many youth as possible to the March for Our Lives in Washington, DC, on March 24. Adult chaperones are needed to accompany them. Teens and adults are encouraged to complete the application found here.
