Niall. “Fall 2020 Winners.” #USvsHate,

Fall 2020 Winner

Niall, Grade 10, Perth Amboy, NJ

Student creator Niall explains, “I chose this because I saw a video of an Asian man getting abused for being Asian. People were yelling at him BECAUSE of this pandemic and I found it absolutely unfair and absolutely disgusting. I don’t think added incidents of racism will change the course of this pandemic. It only makes matters worse, so I thought it had to be put out there and designed my message to show that!” Teacher Heather Renaud describes the teaching behind the message: “I teach U.S. History with a focus on anti-racism, cultural relevance, social justice issues, and overall teaching for tolerance. When I learned about this call to action, I knew it was perfect for my students. Not only are they critical thinkers, they are so artistic and creative. They have so much to share! It was the perfect activity as we spend a lot of time in class discussing Latinx/Hispanic heritage, Black history, women’s history, along with current social and political issues. This was a way for my students to make commentary on issues that were important to them, and I am so proud of them!”
