Following a student-driven proposal to raise the Black Lives Matter flag on Edmunds Middle School campus. The proposal asked that "beginning in Spring 2020 the EMS BLM flag be raised each year during Black History Month and that it remains flown until summer vacation, and that the 'EMS community continue this practice until the day that marginalized students and their allies agree that there is no longer a need to bring attention to systemic issues that disproportionately harm students of color.'"

RETN was invited to film and create a video respecting the students and faculties involved in the flag raising and to commemorate the day when their community came together under a single unifying voice.
