Roeper Students Continue “Elect With Respect” Campaign

Dear Roeper Community,

Two Roeper 9th graders have started a petition you might want to consider signing. It came out of a Middle School Student government campaign, “Elect With Respect”, calling for a more respectful political dialogue. Emma Wine and Avery Long have now written a petition asking the CPD (Commission on Presidential Debates) and partisan debate hosts to fact-check their debates.
should be supported.

Thank you,
Emery Pence
