Community Gathering for Healing and Accountability

Join us for a community healing event at the Biglerville High School Parking lot on Saturday March 13, 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., to listen to survivors expose decades of racially motivated child abuse at Biglerville schools. Gathering at the Biglerville High School parking lot, we will listen to a collective declaration written by current students asking the community to demand accountability, creating a safe school for children of color.

The group will march to pressure the school district to change and to start the healing
process of survivors. The march will end at the Biglerville High School parking lot for a presentation where Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) from our community will read students’ accounts regarding racism and abuse experienced in Biglerville schools. Hear the pain, the passion, and the need for change from our community of color as they share their stories dating from 1968 to the present.

We encourage previous students, current students, school board members, faculty, and all members of the community to join us in support of our youth of color to promote healing and demand change.

Change starts with accountability.
