We were appalled to hear the comments made by board president Brooke Ashjian equating the LGBT community to the horrendous actions by the Ottoman empire against Armenians.
A group of more than 10 faith leaders have requested an agenda item be added to this meeting calling on the censure/removal of title for Mr Ashjian. Your support in attending would be greatly appreciated.
We invite you all to show up on September 13, 2017 at 5:30 pm for the Fresno Unified School District board meeting at 2309 Tulare St., Fresno, CA 93721. Be emotionally prepared for anti-LGBT supporters.
You may also call, email or write (details below) Fresno Unified School District board trustees and demand that Brooke Ashjian be removed from the Fresno Unified School Board, both as president and as a member. He is toxic to our youth, both gay and straight. Between his obvious contention for the gay community (of which some of his students belong) and his inability to take either ownership for his words OR to learn from them, he has shown himself to be incapable of leading our youth towards the kind of world we all need: an honest, inclusive, and fair one.
