Lulabel Seitz spent her high school career as a model student. The first in her family to graduate from high school, she earned her spot as her Northern California school's valedictorian and was granted the honor of giving the class commencement speech at her graduation.
But, at just 4 minutes into her graduation speech, as Lulabel began addressing the issue of sexual harassment and assault, the school where she had devoted so much of her young adult life promptly silenced her by turning off her microphone.
We don't think anyone should be cut off when speaking their truth, raising awareness and enlisting others to join the fight. Seems like maybe there are a few administrators at Lulabel's school who could learn a lesson or two from her, rather than the other way around.
We're so proud of you, Lulabel Seitz! And we can't wait to see what the future holds for you. #LetHerSpeak
