TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Students at Topeka High School will express togetherness during heightened political tensions.
A unity walk will be held at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday.
During the walk, students will be allowed to leave class and walk from the high school to the statehouse.
USD 501 said the unity walk is a way to bring teens back together as a school community.
Topeka high principal, Rebecca Morrisey said the school has worked with school police to provide safety for students who make the walk.
School administrators and staff will also participate in the event.
A similar event will take place on the K-State campus at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Students will come together for a sit in on the university’s Manhattan campus.
Organizers call the event a “response of love to hate filled acts.”
