The Edmunds Middle School Youth Participatory Action Research Collective

Edmunds Middle school will become the second school in the Burlington School District to fly the Black Lives Matter flag.

On Tuesday, the school board approved a proposal by Edmunds’ Youth Participatory Action Research Collective to raise the flag every February to mark Black History Month. The flag will fly until summer vacation

The proposal called for the flag to fly each year until “the day that marginalized students and their allies agree that there is no longer a need to bring attention to systemic issues that disproportionately harm students of color.”

The Collective will hold a flag raising ceremony in February. Burlington High School raised the Black Lives Matter flag in February 2018.
