The staff and students of the Brooklyn New School and Brooklyn Collaborative joined hands around our building at noon on Friday Feb 17 in a show of support for our entire 610 Henry community.
Why? Recently, in our city and country, we’ve seen an increase in unkind and biased actions based on a person’s race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and immigration status. We planned a building wide action to show that within our school walls, we are a space where everyone is welcome and where we will take a stand if anyone is treated unfairly. At 610 Henry, everyone is welcome, everyone is respected and everyone is taken care of. This is part of our continuous work as allies to each other.
