Petition update

We are asking for your continued support

Southwood Students

Apr 6, 2018 — So as many of us know, this petition was declared a "victory" earlier this week. Though this was initially amazing news, we have to backpedal.

A recent statement released by our principal in aid of the Caddo Parish School Board has been released, claiming that Roberts never denied Kami Pham the right to have her photos displayed or wearing her outfit of choice at graduation.

We strongly believe in Kami and will continue to side with her despite the allegations being made. We are currently working with our advising team on how to move forward.

We will do our best to keep all of our supporters updated on the situation as it unfolds. Below are a few more articles posted about the situation, and we are happy that our story is getting as far as it has!

Please continue to sign and share this petition to show our school and the people who oppose Kami's rights that we are not done yet, help us reach 5k!
