  After the all-girls assembly on March 7, many students were inspired to start their own change around Lewiston High School. This assembly was put on Kind Campaign, an organization dedicated to stopping “girl-on-girl crime.”

  The founders, Molly Mae Thompson and Lauren Paul are based out of Malibu, California. They started this organization nearly a decade ago. Thompson and Paul promote the power of kindness and caring, as well as the “lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying,” according to their website.

  The Lewiston High School counseling center has set up a Kind Wall outside the auditorium for female students to write inspring messages on. Attendees of the assembly also received Kind Pledges, Kind Apologies and Kind Cards in order to promote peace and healing amongst students.

  In addition to the Kind Wall, the counseling center will be instituting a new activity into homerooms: throughout the month of April, students will come up with ideas (with the help of their homeroom teachers) of acts of kindness in order to keep the momentum of the assembly going.

  Students and teachers are encouraged to take photos or short videos of these acts in order to document the effectiveness of this new agenda.
