New Haven Academy students raising awareness about Ebola

Students with New Haven Academy's Facing History Council are leading an effort to educate their peers about the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone. Inspired by Mayor Toni Harp's "Citizens to Drive Out Ebola Campaign," the students have a launched a three-part plan to:
 
1) Run a "Quarters Against Ebola" campaign in which advisory groups are competing to see who can raise the most money, between 12/5 and 1/19 (MLK Day)...
2) Prepare a lesson for advisory groups to learn more about the myths and facts of Ebola and the idea of "universe of obligation" -- a Facing History idea that asks people to think more broadly about how we define the circle of people in the world for whom we feel empathy and responsibility...
3) Create posters to promote the campaign and to dispel myths about Ebola.
