Statement Regarding Accusations of Sexual Assault by San Diego Unified School Board President and Trustee Kevin Beiser

For Immediate Release

First, and foremost, sexual harassment and assault will not be accepted or tolerated by the San Diego Democrats for Equality.

The action and behavior that has been alleged against San Diego Unified School Board President and Trustee Kevin Beiser stand in direct conflict with the values of our Democratic club.

We are deeply disappointed and offended that any elected official — especially a member of our LGBTQ community — would behave and act so inappropriately in the manner alleged against Mr. Beiser.

The San Diego Democrats for Equality stand on the side of justice and support for those survivors and victims of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

In light of these serious allegations, we will be bringing forth an emergency resolution calling for Mr. Beiser to resign.

Signed,

Will Rodriguez-Kennedy
President
San Diego Democrats for Equality

Ryan Trabuco
Vice President for Resource Development
