San Francisco Board of Education (School Board) Commissioner Alison Collins

We are angered and disturbed to see that Alison Collins, VP of the SF Board of Education, has referred to Asian Americans as “house n****r[s]” in a 2016 tweet thread. Labelling our diverse API communities with such hateful language is racist and wrong. It is time to call out racism in our own City. Her words dehumanize Asians — our students, parents and teachers are not allowed to feel safe, accepted, or valued in our own school district. As an elected official, she must be held accountable for her actions. After refusing to adequately take responsibility for her words, over 20 elected officials, all of the top school district staff, and four Democratic Clubs have called for Collins to resign. Add your name to the petition below.

Commissioner Alison Collins’s public 2016 tweet thread dehumanizes our students and parents, and divides our communities of color. After refusing to adequately take responsibility for her words, I want her to resign.
