Jessica Ahlquist is the high school sophomore at the center of the lawsuit against the city of Cranston over a religious banner hanging in the local high school. She recently sat down for a lengthy interview with her uncle, who happens to make a YouTube series called Philosophy On the Ground:
There aren’t too many high-schoolers out there with that level of courage and outspokenness. My appreciation for her just skyrocketed. She’s exactly the type of person you want leading the charge in a lawsuit like this — she knows what she’s talking about and she’s not doing it because she’s “anti-Christian.” She’s simply doing what’s right.
***Update***: Jessica was also interviewed the other night on Freethought Rhode Island.
