On March 5th, youth leaders of EPIC (Empowered Prioritized Intelligent Chicks) of Sherman High School in Boone County, West Virginia advocated for the Employment and Housing Nondiscrimination Act (EHNDA) at the State Capitol.  Frustrated about bullying and discrimination around sexual orientation at their high school, they learned about advocacy at the state level in order to make change locally.
