Manhattan Country School's 2015-2016 Activism Project:
Come to our Cultural Festival on March 17th!
By Kyle, 8th Grade
This year, the 7th and 8th grade activism project is focusing on the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act is a bill that says that if you came to the U.S. before the age of fifteen and lived here for more than five years, you may become a U.S citizen if you attend college or serve in the military for at least two years.
On Saturday, March 17th, from 2-5 p.m., we will be hosting a Cultural Festival at MCS to raise money for our activism trip to Washington D.C where we will lobby for the DREAM Act bill to pass. We will be participating in the American Immigration Lawyers Association Day of Action. Please come to our Cultural Festival and support student activism at MCS!
The Cultural Festival will include:
Food from around the world:
Spaghetti and more…
Games/Activities that celebrate different cultures:
