Meet the equity candidates for Niles Township High School Dist 219 (Zoom Meeting)
February 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Meet the 4 equity-minded candidates running as a group for the 4 open seats on the Niles Township High School District 219 Board (Niles North, Niles West & Niles Central) in the April 2023 election. You’ll hear from the candidates, have a chance to ask questions, and find out how you can help their campaign.
Registration is required for this meeting. Register Here.
The candidates are Kennya “Ken” Durr, Ganae McAlpin-Toney, Celia Stennett, and Amber Wood. They joined together when they learned of reductive language and practices forming that aim to take away rights and resources from students of Niles Township District 219. They wholeheartedly refute these tactics. For more information about them, Go to their Website.
You may know that the last few years have seen extreme groups attacking our libraries, school boards, and local elections. National hate groups have been organizing with local extremists to run candidates in local elections to roll back progress made regarding EDI (equity, diversity & inclusion) and to change services, education, and government. Examples can be seen in Niles, Lincolnwood and more.
To combat this and ensure that fair, representative, and equity-minded candidates are on the ballot, we encourage everyone who lives in D219 to support and vote for the 4 equity candidates. The District Map is Here.
Join us and invite others to hear from them, learn more about them, and find out how you can get involved in their campaign.
