Alliance not political

To the Editor:

Congrats to Emma Falk, the Crystal Lake high school student who helped set up a Gay Straight Alliance at Crystal Lake Central in spite of District 155 not allowing them to advertise and get funds due to it being a “political club.”

Building bridges, forming alliances, maybe forming friendships and countering bullying is not the agenda of any one political party.
