Five Upper School students went to Washington D.C. this weekend for the 2017 Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice.
Grace McGrath '18, Chloe Kallenberg '18, Maya Tsimmer '19, Elena Baldwin '19, and Eva Frohnhofer '19 joined more than 2000 high school and college students to learn more about racism, the criminal justice system, and immigration. On Monday, they went to the Senate to advocate for these issues. The 91st Street students spoke to staff members from Senator Gillibrand's office about immigration reform as well as racism and mass incarceration. They also met students from other Sacred Heart schools and Sr. Diane Roche, RSCJ.
