Equality California Gives Full Support to San Bernardino School Board Member's Assembly Bid in California’s 40th District
SAN BERNARDINO, CA— Demonstrating her commitment to equality and fair treatment of the LGBT community, today San Bernardino City Unified School Board Member Abigail Medina announced a monumental endorsement from Equality California in her campaign for California State Assembly District 40.
Equality California is the nation's largest statewide LGBT civil rights group. In response to the endorsement, San Bernardino City Unified Board Member Abigail Medina said:
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Equality California. As one of the largest LGBT advocates in California, their endorsement reinforces my commitment to equal treatment of LGBT individuals. Far too often members of the LGBT community are discriminated against in the workplace, in schools, and in the housing market. This is unacceptable. As a School Board member I worked to address bullying and discrimination in our school system by helping develop a zero tolerance policy for bullying of any kind, including of members of the LGBT community. Our schools need to be a safe place for children to learn and succeed and that means equal treatment regardless of sexual orientation. In the Assembly, I will work with Equality California to ensure that the LGBT community has the equal opportunities they deserve.”
