Equipped with signs and relevant stories, Malibu schools parents and students gathered outside the Malibu High auditorium gates Friday, May 24, for a peaceful demonstration called “Help Stop The Hate.”

Just like the signs, which held phrases like “Fighting for equality” and “Make Malibu High safe again,” the stories were unique but with a common point, parents said: Malibu schools administration has not done enough to address reported incidents of racism and bullying among its students.
