1. Stop the use of Chemical Pesticides on Banana crops

Chemical pesticides have been used on banana crops for over half a century. The wide spread use of these pesticides in South American countries has produced numerous accounts of physical illness on the people who work on banana plantations as well as the people of the surrounding villages and towns.

The corporations who use these pesticides on a regular basis are ignoring many of these illness issues. The illnesses that are inflicted on the workers and their families cause undue financial and physical harm, and do not allow them to keep their jobs, which are essential to providing for their families.

2. Don't Phase Out Latin

Latin has been part of Castilleja's educational foundation since the beginning in 1907. It seems unfair that after middle school and upper school students alike have put much time and effort into this cause that it is being phased out.

Eighth graders will never be able to reach an AP level, sixth graders cannot fill their requirement. But Latin is more than just looking good on college applications, it is the highlight of our day, it is the love of learning, it is the JCL competitions, it is Magister Klopacz.

3. Safety and a New Playground for our Children

Magnolia St in dorchester is a long hill like street. On my street theres alot of loving families with alot of children who love to play outside. In the past month, there has been three accidents with children getting hit by speeding cars.

There's no speed bumps or lumps to reduce the speed of these cars and increase the safety of our children in the neighborhood. Also, there are over 8 empty lots on this street, but no playground or clean field for these kids to play in, instead, these lots are being used as dumpsites from outsiders! Adding speed lumps to our street and a playground on one of the lots, would improve effectively the safety of not only the children, but all the families.

As a young Latino I care about my community and the people living in it!
