Encourage your high school students to speak for their lives!
The 2018-2019 Speech Trek topic is: “How can we–students, parents, faculty, our communities, and organizations such as AAUW–eliminate violence aimed at our schools? What actions can we take to prevent another tragedy from taking place?”
In February of this year, after their tragedy, the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, seized a moment for change. They created “March For Our Lives” and launched a national movement. Three months later, another deadly school shooting took place, this time in Texas.
Calling all Branches: you can make a difference in this era of tragedy – start by giving your high school students a voice on this topic. Host a Speech Trek!
