Waggener High School Football Team - kneeling for peace
Organized by: Lauren Aranda
Last Friday at my son's high school football game, one of the players took a knee during the National Anthem. Apparently, today, they received calls from some of the sponsors/donors for the team, threatening to no longer support the team financially. Others have said they will no longer attend games unless that player is off the team. The coaching staff is standing behind the player and the team, as they should. I guess there is no right way for a marginalized group to protest being murdered in the streets. This makes my heart ache. I have decided to start this fund raiser to show support for this school, and for the player who exercised his right to peaceful protest. Please, any donation will help. Thank you.
