La Silla Roja, also known as Fe y Alegría, is an organization that teaches undereducated children throughout the world. Best known for its red chair, the program raises awareness for people who would otherwise not be able to have access to a good education. This year, as you may have seen in Ms. Green’s 7th grade room, Holy Trinity added to the program. We painted our own chair red to help with the cause. You may also have heard that some other schools in the area, such as Gonzaga, are helping out.

This chairs symbolize the millions of children who do not have the opportunity to have a good education like Holy Trinity, and many other, students have. So the next time you walk by a red chair or are in school, take a moment to consider how blessed you are to be getting a good education.
Below is a video to learn more about the cause:
