On Friday March 31, 2023 Meridian High School participated in a Nationwide Education Strike. Students received an excused absence from school and met at Lazy Mike’s Deli at 11am. They made posters, shirts, and grabbed a snack before protesting in front of the school. They proceeded to block the Broad Street intersection for approximately 5 minutes, and then lined up along the sidewalk of Broad Street displaying their posters. As the protest came to an end around 1pm they marched to Falls Church City Hall.
