April 15 – April 19, 2024: It’s busy season for STFers as they spring into action! STFers at Alain Leroy Locke, Canyon, Carlsbad, Carson, Da Vinci and Palisades Charter High Schools hosted lunch walkabouts, school-wide lessons, simulations, trivia games and tent events to spread knowledge about this year’s Celebrating 75 Years of Human Rights Action Plan.
