(English) Rally and Public Comment on Sanctuary Schools Resolution

Padres & Jóvenes Unidos (PJU) hosted a rally prior to the February 16th school board meeting with five other organizations, and gave public comment to encourage the board to pass a "Sanctuary Schools" resolution. Our members presented over 1,000 signatures that were collected in two weeks regarding the Sanctuary Schools campaign. Mayra Evangelista, PJU Youth Leader, asked the Board, "If students and parents are not safe in pursuing an education, where they can be safe?"

The "Safe and Welcoming Schools" resolution takes a strong stance against the executive order promising to defund "Sanctuary Cities," and it is now up to us to make sure a plan of action will be implemented.
