This campaign is in support of the students and parents of Success Academy.
Success Academy in Bloomington, MN is a public charter school serving students from grades K-6. The majority of our students are students of color and come from families who have recently immigrated to the United States. While our current facilities do not have a playground, we are able to use the city park adjacent to our building so our students can get their needed time to run, jump, and play.
These students have been subjected to harassment and intimidation by individuals who have shown up to photograph and record video of them without permission while they are playing at the playground during recess.
MPR News recently wrote a story on this problem - https://www.mprnews.org/story/2019/10/04/twin-cities-mosque-on-edge-after-opponents-start-filming-children
Our solution is to build our own fenced-in playground where Success Academy staff and parents can keep our children protected and away from being photographed and recorded.
We need your support to help our students and stand up to these incidents of discrimination and hate!
