- My name is Stacey Fernandez and I accept the nomination for the SEA Center for Racial and Social Justice Director from two of my colleagues at West Seattle High School. As a woman of color and first-generation scholar and educator, I am dedicated to the advancement of racial equity in our schools, community, country, and our union – Equity in our labor unions is part and parcel of our broader struggle, as we are the ones that lead the fight. I have been the Racial Equity Team (RET) lead at West Seattle High School for the past two school years. My dedication to racial equity has shown up in every aspect of my work as RET lead and West Seattle High School Care Coordinator. Along with my valued and beloved colleagues, I design professional development for all Green Days, and I work long and hard to ensure that students and colleagues at our school are treated with fairness and respect. I am also an SEA rep that many, many staff feel comfortable in coming to for advice and representation. It would be an honor to take our union’s fight forward.
- I'm running to continue Racial Social Justice work of our union. I want to ensure all Educators voices are raised in and from our community, schools. I'm a union member committed to upholding the organization values, operations and fiscal responsibility. I embrace meeting with members to engage in union progress and professional development that can build, strength our union presence and collective power. My name is Elizabeth Ward-Robertson and I ask for your vote.
