“As an African American woman, I recognized from an early age my duty to fight for the success of young people despite their zip code, skin color, or aspirations in life. Because of this, I sought to educate in the classroom, build power with students and families as a community organizer, and partner with neighbors as a school board member.
Through serving on the Denver Public School Board, I have learned how to successfully govern towards our shared goals while demonstrating a style of leadership that collaborates with students, families and neighbors and listens to their needs and concerns in order to solve real issues.
I have seen first hand how state-level policies impact northeast Denver families both in and outside of the classroom. From education funding, to wage security and affordable housing, the State House is where the root of many of these issues can be solved.”
