Our table at Austin HS
There was good interest from students at Austin HS last Friday, where we had a literature table with our usual materials, including the penny poll and the Peace Wheel of Fortune. Lots of students spun the wheel and could tell us about MLK -- and Flobots! John Lennon also was known by more students than at McCallum or Lanier, it seemed. A few knew about Gandhi and Cesar Chavez -- but quite a few only knew that their school stands on the street named for him. We hope we raised some awareness about Cesar Chavez and the other nonviolent freedom fighters on the wheel. See previous post for an information sheet about them.
The penny poll results indicated Health Care as number one priority once again. Environment and Education tied for second.
