Sahar Yarjani Muranovic

David Douglas School Board, Position 4

As a first-generation immigrant, community organizer, and advocate of racial and gender equity, I am running to make sure our youth of color, ESL students, queer youth, and immigrant and refugee communities are heard and represented. I am a strong advocate of restorative justice practices and investing in mental health resources. I will work towards making sure our schools are investing in additional social workers and counselors as well as access to resources that are inclusive and equitable.
