Nikki’s Notebook: Take Back The Walls

10,000 Post-Its Teaches Lesson To Community

The hallways at one Duluth High School are looking much more colorful than normal.

It’s part of Denfeld student’s campaign to change the conversation after racist and homophobic graffiti appeared on bathroom stalls after the presidential election.

Students in a Exec Board class posted 10,000 positive post-it’s on the walls of one of the floors of the school.

“Even though some of us are not old enough to vote, we are affected by the world around us and it’s important to come together as a school,” said student Johanna Unden. “It shows adults we don’t have to be divided, it’s not something just in high schools, it’s something that can be in your everyday life.”
