GLSEN (pronounced “glisten”) was founded in 1990 with a mission to create safe and affirming schools for all students regardless of the gender identity, gender expression, and/or sexual orientation. During their annual “Day of Silence,” participants take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQIA+ people at school. Team Joshi supports these students in their efforts to create a more just world for everyone.
As your Representative, I will fight against discrimination in all its forms. We must value and care for every member of our community. I will
- Champion legislation that empowers marginalized groups, such as LGBTQIA+, Native Americans, and people of color
- Advance policies that allow students to attend school without fear of prejudice
- Promote initiatives to reduce suicides and drug addiction, which unduly affect minorities
- Fight to increase funding to create small businesses, youth centers and programs, and other investments in disadvantaged communities
Diversity of background and experience is what makes America great. Together, America Works!
