A Mexican Crossing Lines – Abuse at Fargo North High: Story of Christopher Thumb

Christopher was savagely beaten in the head and torso and sustained approximately 50 blows to his head; he was bleeding in school from his lip and he had a black eye. The students were never checked on by any staff during the attack in the locker room on Christopher. No teachers or staff reported the incident to the school administration or got Christopher any medical attention. No one from the school called to notify parents or family of the attack.

KPPP-LP FM Receives Funding from the Bush Foundation

The People’s Press Project Awarded a $25,000 grant for Community Innovation Beginning July 1st, 2015, the People’s Press Project (PPP) will begin outreach to establish Fargo-Moorhead’s newest low power FM radio station called KPPP-LP FM.   The Bush Foundation has invested $25,000 towards the community building that the PPP will undertake in the FM community.  The grant will be used to engage communities of color and disenfranchised communities in the creation of a non-commercial, community owned low power FM radio station serving Fargo-Moorhead.
