Endorsed by Black in the Burbs
I’m thrilled to be the only BCSD Board of Education candidate with the endorsement of Black in the Burbs, a grassroots organization focused on highlighting and combating anti-Black racism, discrimination, and poverty.
I believe in the philosophy of “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Anti-racist theory is not creating guilt, but helping put the story telling of our history into context. It is understanding the origins of racism and how they can act to disrupt this. It is giving teachers skills on how to intervene, redirect conversation and help others do the same.
We’ve been raising a guide dog puppy since March 2021. Learn a bit more about why we’re doing that and why it is so important to me.
My husband, Jeff Wigal, is a software developer and owns an online business that is used to schedule referees and umpires. I also have two wonderful children, one sophomore and one graduating senior.
