Many of students, staff and parents have heard the horrible news that has occurred at Park Hill South High School in Riverside, Missouri. If you’re not informed about what happened, this petition will explain everything. According to several Park Hill South students and Kansas City Star states

“When Park Hill South’s interim principal, Kerrie Herren, ran out onto the volleyball court last Tuesday and demanded that the girls take off their “Together We Rise” warm-up shirts that instant, “it was just embarrassing,” said Abbie Day, the senior who’d proposed the shirts as a symbol of racial equity and inclusion.

Was that message a problem in the Riverside, Missouri, school, where just shy of 70% of the students are white? Was it the sight of three raised fists, in three different skin tones, that wasn’t acceptable? And why the on-court ambush, when the players had proudly worn their new shirts at an away game on Monday night, and again to school on Tuesday, without any problems?

“The coaches tried to be like, ‘It’s OK,’ but he was not taking that,” Day said. “He seemed angry.” In the moment, she and her teammates were more mortified than they were mad, though that came later. Players on the opposing team, from North Kansas City High School, had worn the shirts, too, in solidarity, and Herren asked some of them to take them off as well, without realizing they weren’t even his students.“ 

 

Not only is Kerrie Herren verbally harassing his own students, John Carr joined in to harass students from other schools as well. As a student in the Park Hill School District, this is not in anyway acceptable. The “Together We Rise” shirt was not insulting or harming to any other student or adult, so it wasn’t against the school’s handbook. This shirt has no history of violence or verbal assault, unlike “KKK” shirts & “MAGA” shirts. This simple t-shirt is allowing students to exercise their constitutional rights; Freedom for all. 

 

Is this really what you want you/ your child’s future to look like? Not being able to express a right? There have also been several reports of John Carr & Kerrie Herren being racist towards students, staff and parents. 

 

You all know what the right thing to do is.
