I'm excited to combine my diverse communications experiences with my education background to promote Stand's work.

President-elect Trump,

Since you were elected as our next president, there has been an alarming surge of incidents of bullying and intimidation in our nation’s schools. Students, and even teachers have been the victims of acts of hatred, and too often, the perpetrators have made clear that they had been emboldened to act this way by your victory and your harsh rhetoric.

Schools are supposed to be a safe haven for our children, not a place where anyone should have to live in fear. Diversity is part of what makes this nation strong; schools put enormous energy into protecting students from bullying and intimidation because of the lasting damage it can do to children and their education. We trust that this is not the vision you have for this nation and that you would be deeply troubled by bullies lashing out in your name.
