Mr. Gilmour met with three students to talk about the crossburnings that happened last year in Asheville, to talk about the work the organization does and to help the students explore what young people can do to take a stand against racism. Of course, just a few days later, Isaac Dickson Elementary marched through downtown Asheville as part of the Take a Stand Against Racism day. One of the students who met with Mr. Gilmour was even quoted--and mentioned Writing to Change the World.
Ms. Dissen met with two students who are working on presentations that involve climate change.
Here are some pictures, more soon from the meeting with Ms. Dissen,:
