The Social Justice Club held its very first annual Immigration Day at Millennium Brooklyn High School. The club asked students to wear green and make different signs to hang up in the school hallways in show of support. They also made different buttons and distributed them to the students in the school who wanted them. The club then went to a protest in support of Immigrants Day in front of Borough Hall in Brooklyn, New York. The protest was dubbed “ A Day Without Immigrants.”

A school representative who runs the club had this to say about what they did that day. “The kids felt that they needed to be heard. They felt like they needed to be apart of this, so they made signs, wore green and attended the Immigration Day Protest. ” Michael Williams, senior and a student in the club, also attended this march. He said he thought it was necessary to join this protest adding “some of us feel unsafe with the immigration agenda that this new Presidential administration has. We had the obligation to participate during this day and during this protest. We need to have our voices heard!”

This protest was a tipping point which caused other schools, including Secondary School for Journalism, which is also on John Jay Campus, to follow suit. Many other schools in Brooklyn and the other Boroughs had “walk-out” days in support of this Immigration Reform Movement.
