Two years after the Unite the Right rally, which consisted of a deadly protest in Charlottesville and a march on Grounds, we must begin preparing for history to repeat itself. White supremacist activism on college campuses is becoming increasingly prevalent. During the 2018-2019 school year, the number of fliers promoting white supremacist ideologies on college campuses increased by seven percent.

Recent studies have shown that children between the ages of 8 and 12 spend three times as much time inside with screens than they do playing outside.
