University School Students Deliver Powerful “Think B4 You Speak” Message of Acceptance at Special Assembly

University School of NSU student leaders favor freedom of speech and they want people to realize that what they say has impact. To emphasize the importance of thinking before speaking, the school recently held a special student-run awareness assembly to address negative terminology and stereotypes that scar countless children.

“As a journalist, I am all for freedom of speech,” said moderator and University School Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) president Mason Roth. “If you want to say a word, go for it, but be cognizant. And if you’re in a situation that doesn’t really require you to say offensive words, don’t.”

Banding together to spread the word were representatives of Best Buddies (students who foster one-on-one friendships with developmentally disabled), FRAT (students who promote Autism awareness), GSA (students who strive for safety and support for all students), Special Olympics (students who advocate for and support special-needs persons) and Scholar-Athletes (who play one or a number of different sports).
