Public School Teacher, GFU Alumni

Tai Harden is a resilient mother, educator, mentor, advocate, and friend. From the

moment I met her, she put the needs of others first and helped elevate BIPOC voices in

predominantly white spaces. Tai’s commitment to racial equity and students will serve

the school board district well. Her voice and perspective are needed now more than

ever. It is time we acknowledge and uplift students and families on the margins and Tai

will do just that. Electing Tai Harden on the Newberg school board brings the district one

step closer to eradicating the systemic injustices which lie within our education system.
