Today, the Santa Rosa City Schools Board of Education and Superintendent released a powerful statement supporting #BlackLivesMatter, and proposing new curricula in ethnic studies.
'We are outraged and grief stricken over the senseless deaths of our Black brothers and sisters at the hands of law enforcement. We say their names – George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others – as we join those who mourn. We say their names as we dedicate ourselves to transformation.
We remember our own loss. Andy Lopez was a 13-year-old Cook Middle School student when a Sheriff Deputy shot and killed him in 2013.
