Students from Shorewood High School to do a Banner Drop at Shoreline City Hall to support refugee and immigrant rights

Sunday, April 7, 2019

On April 9, 2019, students from the Shorewood High School chapter of Amnesty International will lead a demonstration to demand action from policy makers and elected officials to create a welcoming and safe environment for immigrants and refugees in Shoreline and the greater Seattle area. 

“We need to reframe the narrative around refugees and immigrants. We are just human beings like any other.” said Maria Solano, President of Shorewood Amnesty International, and immigrant from Nicaragua.

There will be a large banner drop at Shoreline City Hall to create a statement and to urge legislators to take action.

"In a time of hate and violence, we, the youth, must be the voices of change and action."
