"Schools across the Essex Westford School District put up Black Lives Matter flags Thursday morning to express solidarity with people of color in their schools, community and world. In an email sent to families, the school district said they are working toward being an anti-racist organization through professional development, curriculum changes and hiring practice. Student leaders raised the issue and pushed the school board to vote on raising the flags. The board voted unanimously in favor of the plan."
