Our friends in Foggy Bottom aren’t too happy about the Westboro Baptist Church’s protest next month. While one student group has already organized a counter-protest, GW freshman Daniel Wein and junior Daniel Reade decided to act differently.
Wein and Reade created Transcend Hate, a group that aims to raise money for those targeted by the WBC, according to the GW Hatchet.
“We didn’t like the idea of responding to noise with more noise, responding to yelling with yelling,” Wein told the Hatchet. “We didn’t really feel like that was a positive way to confront them even if you have silly signs.”
