Educational excellence, opportunity, and access must go hand in hand with principles of equity and justice. We must continue to root out racism and bias from our classrooms and campus. As a LACCD trustee I pledge to support campus-based Equity Plans that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. I will support faculty efforts to construct and redesign curriculum to build equitable anti-racist classroom environments. I will push to re-evaluate the Community College Bureau’s contract with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and reimagine campus safety.
