In this day and age that we live in, information is flowing through our fingertips. Why google things when we can ask siri and literally not lift a single finger? There are things that we wouldn’t want shared without our permission; and the same thing can go to our children.

On June 23rd, 2018, the Boston Public Schools (BPU) was slammed with a lawsuit alleging that BPU shared information citizenship information with ICE. A day later, the superintendent of Boston public schools, Tommy Chang, resigned, declining to explain why this was continuing to happen.

“Our schools should be a safe space for all students regardless of rate or country of origin. Students who are exhibiting signs of risky behavior, like fighting and cutting class, should be referred to intervention programs, not to the federal government.”

Teens for Action Springfield stood with Massachusetts Parents United at the Liberate ALL Families/Liberar TODAS Las Familas rally in Springfield. It’s important to have a unified front when it come to legislative change in America; and we couldn’t think of anyone better to stand with. We pride ourselves on being a multicultural melting pot, yet we purposefully refuse to add any good ingredients.

“The land flourished because it was fed from so many sources–because it was nourished by so many cultures and traditions and peoples.”
