Grace Smith, a 16-year-old high school student, was arrested for not wearing a mask.
The dispute sent the school into lockdown for over an hour.
They literally did an entire building lockdown to try to guilt her into wearing a mask. They try scare tactics but to their surprise, nothing works. Grace just respectfully says "no" ever single time they ask her to put it on. She’s not backing down. Courage is contagious.

A 16-year-old high school student was arrested Thursday over a mask dispute, forcing the school into lockdown for over an hour.
Grace Smith, a student at Laramie High School, was suspended from school for six days via three separate two-day suspensions, she claimed in an interview with Wyoming Sen. Anthony Bouchard about her arrest. She also allegedly received $1,000 in trespassing fines for refusing to leave school grounds.
“It makes me angry,” Smith said. “It makes me feel unwanted by the school system. It makes me stressed out that I have to fight this battle as a 16-year-old. Right now, I should be playing sports and having fun. And instead, I’m fighting for the rights that were supposed to be won hundreds of years ago.”
$35,000 has been raised for Grace’s legal defense:
You guys have helped raise $35,000 for Grace’s legal defense to fight insane mask mandates for kids. Our freedom family is amazing!! Someone asked so just wanted to be very clear, no I don’t & would never take even $1 from donations. It’s all going direct to her family to fight.
