A graphic included in the tweet indicates that the February 1 event is open to students, families, staff, and members of the community.
The district has flown the BLM flag in the past as well, and it has also hoisted other controversial flags, including pride and transgender flags.
“This morning, the district raised the Black Lives Matter flag, along with the Pride and Trans flags, at the Eugene Brucker Education Center,” the district tweeted in June 2020.
BLM is both pro-choice and pro-LGBT.
“Black liberation movements in this country have created room, space, and leadership mostly for Black heterosexual, cisgender men — leaving women, queer and transgender people, and others either out of the movement or in the background to move the work forward with little or no recognition. As a network, we have always recognized the need to center the leadership of women and queer and trans people,” the group’s website states.
In a statement responding to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last year, BLM declared that the ruling was “one of several this week designed to limit freedom in service of a white supremacist and patriarchal agenda.” BLM also claimed that “full access to abortion care is necessary for all Black people.”
BLM recently tweeted, “Police represent the interest of capitalism and advance white supremacy at any and all costs.”
