We can’t wait to hear more about how your missions are going!
In Agent Bowe’s class, the Homelessness Team is organizing to collect donations for a local shelter. The Disease Team is recruiting volunteers to organize a fundraiser to make care packages for sick children.
In Agent Brown’s class, The Donald Trump team is developing an infomercial stressing positivity and inclusion. The Animal Cruelty Team is recruiting volunteers to help run a fundraiser to help a local humane animal shelter.
In Agent McCorkle’s class, a team focused on Racism is excited to make YouTube videos, Instagram posts, and letters to Donald Trump about stopping racism. The team focused on Violence hopes to research who makes laws about gun control, and write letters to them about helping to stop gun violence.
In Agent Garcia’s class, another team dedicated to stopping Racism plans to talk to the counselor about creating a “No Place for Racism” club at Shadow Glen Elementary. The team dedicated to stopping Abuse wants to make posters and organize a march to raise awareness about many different kinds of abuse.
Here’s what the courageous leaders of Rodriguez Elementary have been working on since their Courage in Actin training ended:
A team concerned about the messages in Donald Trump’s speeches started making posters encouraging equal treatment for all people.
The team focused on the treatment of immigrants in detention centers worked on writing letters to Immigration and Customs Enforcement asking for better treatment of everyone in the facilities, and to let people free to stay in this country.
The Natural Disasters team and Hunger/ Homelessness team realized that they had similar goals for the action they had decided on. They were both working toward food and clothing drives to help people affected by all of these things, so they decided to work together toward a food drive.
There are so many ambitious missions underway at Rodriguez Elementary!
Agent O’Keefe’s class is taking action to support immigrant communities in a number of ways. One group wants to end immigrant detention, and they plan to write letters to women on hunger strike in a detention center nearby, and also to Immigration and Customs Enforcement asking them to stop detaining immigrants. Another group of new agents in Agent O’Keefe’s class is making plans to fight against racism against immigrants among politicians.
In Agent Severino’s class, one group of agents is going to join forces with the leadership of Rodriguez Elementary, since they’re already collecting donations of food, hygiene items, clothes, and more for those who were affected by the recent floods. The students will help try to boost those donations. Another group focused on fighting hunger learned from their teacher that the school also has a food pantry where families can come weekly if they need assistance. Since the agents weren’t aware of it, they thought other students might not be either. So, they’re making posters and a statement during morning announcements to let people know it’s available. The idea of a food drive was new to them, and they talked about running a food drive for the school’s food pantry.
