Educators Concerned about Impact on Students of Southwest Border Actions

Denver – Dozens of Denver Public Schools (DPS) educators will join together to speak out in support of immigrant families, concerned by federal actions on the Southwest Border.

School leaders plan to stand in unity with their peers in support of keeping families together. School principals from across DPS will be joined by Denver Board of Education members.

A poster will be available for all guests to sign, proclaiming that “all students and families are safe in Denver Public Schools.”

Interviews in English and Spanish will be available.
