Ed. Community Responds to Immigration Orders

Joint statement from Denver Public Schools, Denver Classroom Teachers Association, Padres & Jóvenes Unidos, Colorado Education Association

A response from Denver education community to President Trump’s executive orders on immigration.

We stand together — as a school district, educators, students and families — to oppose the actions President Trump has taken through his executive orders today, Jan. 26, 2017. Immigrant and refugee students, families, educators and staff are precious members of the Denver school communities and we greatly value them for the contributions they make to our schools and communities.

We will do everything in our individual and collective power to protect them from deportation, criminalization, intimidation and harassment.

Sincerely, 

Elsa Oliva Rocha, Pam Martinez, Ricardo Martinez | Co-Executive Directors, Padres & Jóvenes Unidos
Henry Roman | President, Denver Classroom Teachers Association
Tom Boasberg | Superintendent, Denver Public Schools
Kerrie Dallman | President, Colorado Education Association and Jefferson County High School Teacher
