The Young Catholics - a series of portraits

 

Five young Catholics behind the "Keep Mr. Z" movement. In December 2013, Eastside Catholic High School in Sammamish, WA. fired a popular vice principal for his same-sex marriage. Students shot back, organizing sit-ins, rallies and protests. Fueled by social media, the student-led movement gathered steam at other Catholic and public schools in the Seattle area and quickly garnered international attention.  

 

 

The students are profiled in a broadcast story that originally aired Jan. 16, 2014 on KPLU-FM.
