Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization, has endorsed Kristine Kraus for Seminole County School Board, the first endorsement made by the PAC in the Seminole County School Board race.

“As the mother of a gay son who experienced bullying in the classroom, I am running to be an advocate for our children who have not had the protections of a fully-inclusive anti-bullying policy in our district,” says Kraus.

“We must stand up for all of our students and create a welcoming and safe environment for every child to learn. That’s why, as one of my first acts as a member of the school board, I will introduce a resolution to modify our district’s current zero-tolerance bullying policy to include sexual orientation and gender identity.”

Kristine Kraus is committed to making our schools safe, welcoming, and fully-inclusive to all students. Her endorsement by Equality Florida, the first time the civil rights group has made an endorsement for a candidate for SCPS, is a testament to that commitment.
