Latitude hosts the first Solidarity Day


Oakley Briskman, Editor in Chief

Latitude hosted its first Solidarity Day facilitated and planned by the Empowerment Club, Black Student Union, and the QGSA (Queer, Gay, Straight Alliance). Jaeva Johnson-Harvey, a sophomore, said, “The goal was to build togetherness, especially since it is hard for others to accept people of other genders, races, or sexualities.” 

On Thursday April 27, the Empowerment Club visited classrooms with a presentation called Beyond the Bystander. This was a presentation to prepare Latitude students for the following day of solidarity. At lunch on Friday April 28, a potluck was set up where students brought different foods to share. Following the potluck there was an afternoon filled with different workshops. They ranged from a photo booth and bracelet making to a discussion about the history of the N-word.
