After the Temecula Valley Unified School District approved a controversial flag ban policy on campuses, one student is protesting the new rules by passing out hundreds of Pride flags to classmates.
The move has now sparked a campaign to support Moxxie, a 16-year-old junior at Great Oak High School in Temecula, with people donating Pride flags, pins and stickers to the teen.
After a 3-2 approval on Sept. 12, only state and U.S. flags can be displayed at schools within the district. All other flags would require the superintendent’s approval. Some critics believe the new policy will be used to censor LGBTQ+ support and target pride flags. Following the decision, Moxxie, has been handing out Pride flags and stickers at his school. Despite being a standout AP student, Moxie said he doesn’t feel very supported by his school district.

The Moreno Valley Unified School District Board of Education voted to fire its superintendent on Tuesday. The board voted 3-2 to remove Dr. Martinrex Kedziora after a three-hour meeting behind closed doors.
The firing comes after the district agreed to pay a $27 million settlement to the family of Diego Stolz, a 13-year-old boy who died after he was assaulted by classmates in 2019. Kedziora had served as the superintendent of the district since 2017. The district did not confirm whether the settlement prompted the firing at this time.
The settlement was announced on Sept. 13. Stolz was an eighth-grader who died in a bullying incident four years ago at Landmark Middle School.
