There can be no doubt that the 2016 election stretched our social fabric and hate incidents are on the rise. Our schools must be spaces where all children feel supported and welcomed. Since I announced my run for David Douglas School Board, I have learned of many unreported incidents of hate, bullying, harassment, and intimidation. For those who have experienced this, I encourage you to report these incidents. My campaign will link you with resources and people who can help. Together, we can make our schools safe for all kids.
