Middle School CARE Club members worked diligently throughout the past months to fight injustice and highlight people who have been marginalized in society.
The club's efforts were part of the Season of Nonviolence, a worldwide movement that takes place annually between January 30 (the day in 1948 when Mohandas Gandhi was assassinated) and April 4 (the day in 1968 when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated). The aim is to cultivate peace, love, and nonviolence.
During this time, club members spoke regularly during chapel to promote various efforts. They also offered contests in which Middle and Upper School students created art, poetry, and other fine arts projects in support of the efforts.
Here are the contest winners, which the club selected:
