Sign the Piscataway HS petition to Save the Old Barracks from closure
On their own, two high schoolers in an AP History class at Piscataway High decided they wanted to make saving the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton their class project. They created an online petition and set a goal of getting 1,000 folks to sign on and make comments if they chose.
In about two weeks they have gotten just 1,000 signatures and nearly as many comments. They are from all across the country. You have to be impressed at how much these kids are learning about history, the democratic process, taking effective action, and gaining insight into what history means to so many people from all across the country. How empowering is that?
It’s taking on its own historical cache locally as the “Piscataway Petition.” Take a look, read the comments so many people from all across the country have made, and if you are moved to do so, sign it and maybe add a comment.
The DEADLINE is June 14!
