a statement about the violence at South Philadelphia High school
Members of the Philadelphia Student Union are outraged and saddened with the violence at South Philadelphia High School. We believe that young people need to come together to get the root causes of these issues and put in place real solutions. We are a diverse group of students who have been developing our leadership, doing anti-oppression work, and organizing around school climate and a high quality education for all students. We know that the true issues can only be uncovered through the empowerment of those directly effected. We stand with the students of South Philadelphia High School and all students who are impacted by violence. We know that young people can rise to the challenges we face.
