House of Representatives Wm. Lacy Clay, 1st District, Missouri

“During the first quarter, the sophomores in my classes started a social justice unit focused on the damage that gun violence causes in St. Louis through a variety of social justice oriented texts.  As a culminating project for the unit, they wrote powerful political action letters that harnessed their experiences and knowledge of texts to solve problems in their communities to their congressional representative, Lacy Clay.  Congressman Lacy Clay responded to Brianna, Caleb, Jemeare, Keela, Kinnaudy, and Neah with the attached letter.  In January, Lacy Clay is scheduled to visit our school to have a conversations with Gateway writers!”
