Mississauga's Cawthra Park school community fights back against Pride flag burning
In response to the recent burning of the Pride flag at Cawthra Park Secondary School in Mississauga, the school community has launched a GoFundMe campaign and will hold a Pride solidarity rally tonight (June 16).
The rally takes place at 5:30 p.m. at the school located at 1305 Cawthra Rd.
Current and former staff and students are expected to take part in the rally in support of the 2SLGBTIQA+ community in the aftermath of the flag burning that was filmed last week and shared on social media as well as sent to students in the school.
The rally is also being held in conjunction with the launch of a GoFundMe campaign that will raise funds for the school's Queer-Student Alliance (QSA).
The goal is to raise $1,500 for the QSA who will then choose how the money is spent. If the goal is surpassed the extra money will be shared with other QSA's at other schools with the Peel District School Board system.
