I am a current West High student and strong believer in the power of youth. I am proud to endorse Joél-Léhi Organista in his campaign to be SLCSD's Precinct 1 Board Member.
I was fortunate enough to meet Joél-Léhi while on a sub-committee for the 68th Annual United Nations Civil Society Conference. Joél-Léhi welcomed me to the UN sub-committee with respect as an equal, something I rarely find in professional settings being minor, and encouraged me to contribute in ways I wouldn't have had the courage to before. His strong beliefs in equality resonate in his character and have inspired me to act in my school and locale.
Precinct 1 needs someone who understands the community's dynamic and educational needs and is willing to advocate for students and educators alike; being a former West High student, avid activist, and inspirational educator, Joél-Léhi is the ideal candidate.
