Statement from Trinity’s President

 On November 13, 2018, a symbol of a swastika was scratched into the back of a bathroom stall door here at Trinity High School.  It has been removed.

As part of our established response protocol as an educational institution rooted in the Catholic Dominican tradition, we immediately informed parents and guardians, and addressed the student body this morning through the Campus Ministry and Guidance staff and asked anyone with information to come forward.

Any expression of hate or intolerance is absolutely unacceptable to the Trinity community.

Student Written Feminist Manifesto Performed at One Acts

In class, Trinity students wrote their own version of a Feminist Manifesto based off of Chimamanda Adiche’s Feminist Manifesto (which came out in 2016). They took excerpts from different students to create a combined group Feminist Manifesto that they performed at the One Acts. Click below for more information on the student written Feminist Manifesto.
“Women are facing major threats to their health, safety, and significant limits on their potential each and every day.  In our Women Studies courses with Ms. Ward, we learned about many injustices, ones that feel very far away and those that are very close to home, impacting our own lives as teenage women. Inspired by Chimamanda Adichie’s Feminist Manifesto, we wrote our own feminist manifestos on how best to navigate this complex world as women and how to effect change for the future. Since women are strongest when they work together, we will read a compilation of many students’ ideas, in order to offer suggestions for the Trinity student body as you nurture your inner feminists.

First off, let’s define what feminism is and what it is not. It is NOT an effort to threaten power or to degrade men. It is an effort to equalize power between sexes.  It IS the belief in the social, political and economic equality of both sexes. It IS the belief that women are equal human beings and therefore deserving of the same dignity and opportunities. Come closer to feminism and you will see how it can liberate our world.”

And it goes on from there with about a dozen different suggestions/teachings for men, women, young girls and young boys.
