DELTA, CO – Not all protests need to be big and loud. Some of the most effective activist movements happen in towns far from metropolitan skylines and network news cameras.
Last night’s student protest at the Delta County School Board meeting is just the latest example. Here, two students who’d never really organized before were able to inspire their network of supporters in a small rural town to amplify their voices and call for racial justice.
Below are some of the testimonials that activists Marisa Edmonson and Jordan Evans collected as part of their open letter to the school district calling for changes to remove bias and address racism in schools.
