The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Dolores Huerta, labor rights and social justice activist and organizer, announced her support of Triston Ezidore for Culver City School Board, calling him a fighter with a passion for service and a vision for Culver City Unified School District.
“Triston Ezidore is a fighter. His passion for service and a vision for Culver City Unified School District that is grounded in his own lived experience and belief in the transformative potential of education policy. At this pivotal moment in Culver City’s history, we need to elect candidates who are ready to meet the moment — that’s why I’m so proud to endorse Triston’s candidacy for Culver City Unified School Board,” said Dolores Huerta.
“Dolores Huerta’s bold leadership has, and continues to, pave the way for leaders to come and shake the table while calling into question draconian and oppressive policies and practices that criminalize and dehumanize communities simply for how they show up in the world. I’m humbled and honored to receive her endorsement. I look forward to a continued partnership as we organize to deliver bold systemic change to the students, faculty, and staff of Culver City Unified School District,” said Triston Ezidore.
Dolores Huerta’s endorsement adds to an enthusiastic multigenerational, multicultural coalition of grassroots supporters, including leaders LA County Assessor Jeffrey Prang, LA City Councilmember Mike Bonin, Culver City Mayor Dr. Daniel Lee, Culver City Councilmember Yasmine-Imani McMorrin, Culver City Councilmember Alex Fisch, Culver City School Board Vice-President Paula Amezola de Herrera, and board members Dr. Kelly Kent, Dr. Tashon McKeithan, and Summer McBride, Board President Karlo Silbiger (fmr.), Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells (fmr.), and LA City Controller Dr. Rick Tuttle (fmr.).
If elected, Triston would be the first Black male to serve on the school board, a historic addition to an already diverse body.
