Bravo! This is a shout out to Fairfield students and residents who spoke out and stepped up after two racial slurs rocked our two high schools earlier this month. And on Monday of this week, students “streamed out of Fairfield Ludlow High School, protesting recent racial incidents and calling for changes,” according to the Fairfield Citizen. “A similar action took place across town at Fairfield Warde” where students also staged a walkout.
Organizers in the story noted that “between 500 and 600 students participated in Ludlowe’s event, which lasted a little under three hours and included scheduled speeches and an opportunity for students to share their own experiences.”
