A Message from The KALC Coalition to End White Supremacy

“No state shall…deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…” In 1868 the 14th Amendment was ratified. 152 years later black and brown people across our nation continue to face the deprivation of life, liberty, and property.  The students at KALC (KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate) recognize the disparity in treatment of their fellow BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and undocumented peers.  In accordance with the national movement for racial justice, we will no longer allow the continual oppression of our communities.   

Join us Tuesday, July 28th as we exercise our first amendment right to peacefully assemble for a protest in the name of justice and unity.  We will gather at 20 Wheeler Street, in the parking lot next to the KALC building at 3:30 PM to hear from some of KALC’s brightest students.  From the KALC building we will march, while maintaining a safe social distance, to the Lynn Police Department, where we will honor those unjustly slain by police, and have student speakers throughout the march. After marching back to 20 Wheeler St, we will conclude with a joyous celebration. We, the young people of Lynn, will not allow injustice to thrive as it has for centuries, and neither should you. Come support local students, and the future of our nation as they forge a better world for all of us!
