Good News Edition – February 10, 2018


It’s Valentine’s Day next week. How’d that get here so fast?!? This might be a nice chance to send some love letters. Instead of sending angry emails and persuasive postcards, you could take a break and send some missives with more affectionate and supportive messages. We know one group who could use a little extra love—the students and faculty at Montpelier High School in Vermont. They recently had the courage to be the first school in the nation to raise the Black Lives Matter flag at their school, and they’ve been getting some negative attention for their efforts. They were featured in Breitbart and on other hate group websites, and they have been receiving hate mail and threatening phone calls. If you’d like to send them a Valentine, you can mail it to Racial Justice Alliance, c/o Montpelier High School, 5 High School Drive, Montpelier, VT 05602. We’re sure they’d appreciate a little love.
