Why this petition matters

Junior Damian Harrison was targeted by faculty at Boston College High School for wearing a Durag. The school handbook bans head coverings of any kind including headbands.

They’re are numerous white students that wear headbands and face no penalties, but when a black student wears a durag, he is removed from class for the day and given a JUG (detention). This injustice can and will not be tolerated by the BC High student body.

Durags have a cultural significance to the black community and must be exempted from this handbook rule on head coverings. Sign this petition to stand up against racial injustice and bring more equitable handbook rules.
