School Board lets pastor insult transgender student at board meeting


School Board lets pastor insult Transgender student at board meeting   December 19, 2019 | Pierre Tristam
"Cothran was one person, one bigot. But the numbers Conklin spoke point to the depth of the discrimination and the toll it’s taking, and will continue to take. The answer is not silence, as was inexcusably the case from most board members. It’s not just thanking fanatics for their attendance and information–to which they’re entitled as long as it doesn’t turn to insults. It’s letting the community in words, deeds and procedures know that this is not what we stand for. It is not what we’ll accept."
