Video: Children’s Tribunal
When PBS News Hour heard that 75 students were creating a Children’s Tribunal outside the courthouse, they sent a second camera. Eugene’s mayor Kitty Piercy joined the children, and we deputized the crowd as “judges” who listened to the children share posters and comments about things they care about in Oregon. After each student, the crowd pledged to help that child protect the thing they loved by saying together “We will help you!” The children then rallied with their posters near the busy boulevard, and that footage opens the national news coverage of the case seen here.
