I just saw on my Facebook feed from DCist that members of Westboro Baptist Church are planning to picket Woodrow Wilson Senior High School on June 9th from 8:15 - 8:45 AM. This is in response to Wilson High School being the first school in the nation to hosting LGBTQ pride day.
For this the mental goons from WBC are coming to use their 1st Amendment freedom rights to show why they are a declining population in the USA. BTW in response the a Facebook page is up and it's about a positive response to something so negative.
Friday, June 6th @ 4:00 @ Ft.Reno
POSTER MAKING PARTY!
Come and bring posters, markers, glitter, crayons, paint, stickers, t-shirts etc. and we will finesse them! We will make signs, draw on t-shirts, all that good stuff. We can take your finished products home, or we can store them at the security desk over the weekend and grab them the morning of June 9th, which is that following Monday.
And! Weighing in already is councilmember and Mayoral candidate David Catania who has released the following statement.
"I’m very proud of the Wilson community for standing up for inclusiveness and respect, even in the face of hateful rhetoric."BTW I did look at the Democratic nominee's website and found nothing as well as on their social media - nada too.
Here's a link to Wilson High School
PS I somehow my title changed.
