Know Your Rights Workshop

This upcoming Monday, October 26th ASB leadership will be hosting a Know Your Rights workshop. The workshop will be led by public attorneys from the “ACLU” and “Public Justice” and will cover student rights in regards to protest rights and the right to be free from sex and race discrimination. This event is meant to empower students at Berkeley High so that they can take action when injustices arise, in and outside of the classroom. There will be plenty of time for any questions and we look forward to seeing you there.

Pacific BoyChoir Academy

On November 17th (date changed as of Nov. 7) at 7:00 P.M, ASB leadership will be hosting a virtual concert with the Pacific BoyChoir Academy as a fundraiser for the Berkeley Sexual Harm Survivors Support Group. This Support Group is an organization that dedicates itself to supporting survivors through hosting free sessions facilitated by a trained therapist to survivors of sexual harm. Due to the session being free the group requires funds to help pay for the therapist’s facilitation.

The PBA is a 3x Grammy award winning choir group that has toured different parts of the world giving performances to the likes of Joe Montana, Chabad Telethon, and Zach Galifianakis. The concert will feature music from Kanye West, The Beatles, Oasis, The Weekend, and many more artists and genres. 

The tickets to the virtual concert can be purchased here for $10 each with all proceeds going to the group. Please come out and lend your support for the Berkeley Sexual Harm Support Group. We hope to see you there, get tickets now! If you have any questions please contact Zephyr
