In her letter to President Trump for the 4th Annual Student Voices issue of Friends Journal, Oxford Friends youth member Gillian Murray wrote America needs to be a safe place for anybody and everybody.

To Kill a Mockingbird represents injustice perfectly and I think describes our situation today very well.”
