The Elwood-John H. Glenn High School Social Justice Ambassadors Club attended the third annual Day of Unity conference at Walt Whitman High School, presented by their Muslim Student Association. Approximately 100 students from seven Long Island school districts attended the April 12 event. Reinforcing this year’s theme of inclusivity, the Day of Unity sought to embrace diversity, build connections and foster understanding. The featured speakers were Elwood Board of Education member Dr. Sara Siddiqui and Kehillath Shalom Synagogue Rabbi Lina Zerbarini.

“It was a great day where we learned about different cultures and religions while also learning about the harmful impact that racism has on all of us,” John Glenn student Zaim Shaikh said.
