Oscar Cornejo Casares, WTHS '13, Dartmouth '17, and colleagues from Dartmouth believe that words matter when it comes to acceptance and inclusion. They formed a student-led group at Dartmouth to change the "illegal alien" subject in their school library. Their work received national attention and was debated at Congress in 2016. Their year-long effort was captured in a documentary, "Change the Subject" and recently premiered at the Highland Park Library.
A story in the Lake County Sun News featuring the premiere can be found here.
