There are many amazing students here at AAE but among them there is a group of social conscious students who are part of the Breaking B.R.E.A.D. (Barrier, Regrets, Animosity, And Doubt) Club.

This group of students meets weekly to help create a safe space to discuss the day to day issues of our society. In the wake of the Parkland, Florida school shooting many schools around the nation have joined the conversation about gun violence. In the past few days, this issue has dominated their discussions. This group of young motivated high schoolers want students to feel safe in their schools. 

A statement from the group  says “We believe that Congressional inaction is unacceptable. We know this issue is not simple. We know that our peers are dying. We will not let this pass. We will make our voices heard. We are Breaking B.R.E.A.D.  We are resolved to do more than give our thoughts and prayers. We want to propose steps towards a solution.  Our goal is to take a group of 300 students to Hartford to call on our government to act.” 

On behalf of Breaking B.R.E.A.D., they are calling upon members of our community to help them fund a group of 300 CREC students to attend the March 24 rally in Hartford CT to call on Congress to act.  They are raising funds for participation the event through a GOFUNDME campaign. It is estimated that $3,000 will cover expenses including the cost of making T-shirts and banners.

If you wish to contribute any amount please go to www.gofundme.com/aaedcbread All money will be handled by the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering staff and administration. This includes both withdrawal of funds and paying for the bus and expenses. Please direct any questions regarding the handling of money to the school. 

Any leftover funds will be donated to the 
Stoneman Douglas Victims Fund.
