Berkeley High School has once again displayed an amazing amount of leadership with issues of national importance. In the last two weeks, the BHS Varsity Football team staged an organized protest against police brutality while thousands of students led a peaceful protest against the results of the presidential election. This is reminder that we need both the leader at the front and the leaders from behind in order to support the growth of a movement.
Take some time to watch the full segment on how the varsity football team arrived at consensus to take action. And then read about the powerful reaction by the BHS student body to the potential crisis of our president-elect.
ASB Speaker Series: Chicano Latino United Voices (CLUV) presented LABELS on 10/27
On October 27, Chicano Latino United Voices presented Labels in partnership with ASB Leadership as part of a yearlong speaker series at BHS. The presentation featured a guest speaker Josue Revelorio, a skit about the stereotypes of “illegal immigrants” (more appropriately called undocumented immigrants), a presentation on the significance and origins of terms, a dance, and a student panel. It was a powerful display of leadership and an opportunity to set the record straight on misconceptions around Chicano Latino students.
This is the firstpresentation in what is to be a series of speaker events, each created by a different BHS club or student group to educate their peers on a social justice topic of choice with the help of local community members. The idea for the series is to emphasize important societal topics that may not be fully addressed or emphasized by current school curricula. We hope that you can plan one or all of these themes into your lessons and consider them a sort of student curriculum addendum.
We hope to host a presentation every month from October to May. The lineup thus far is CLUV (October), BHS Stop Harassing (November), Black Student Union (December), Muslim Student Association (January), Fair Trade (February), Amnesty International (March), and GSA (April).
