Press ReleaseFrom: Marcia Webb, President Mansfield Branch NAACPHeadline:
NAACP DENOUNCES TEA PARTY SPEAKER MANSFIELDMarcia Webb, President of the Mansfield Branch (NAACP) was contacted about fliers being posted at the high school in areas around the school which announced a a speaker coming on Monday, March 28th at the High School Auditorium. The speaker is being hosted by The Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party.The N.A.A.C.P. has always supported Education for the future of children, and was disappointed to learn that the High School building would be used to allow "Anti-Muslim, Anti-American Rhetoric" to be spewed from the stage of the schools' auditorium. I spoke to Supt. Freund on yesterday, and I was disappointed that he was not willing to do more to discourage assemblies of this type from occurring at the school.I understand the constitutional right to freedom of speech, but I wholeheartedly disagree with the school district allowing these types of divisive messages to be displayed in our local school building. My concern is for the students attending MSHS who are of the Muslim faith and how this will impact their well being.The Mansfield Branch will be sending written request to the Mansfield School Board asking them to review and amend the policy for future use/rental to include restrictions for the content of the events held at the school buildings. The NAACP believes that this necessary infrastructure for these type checks and balances will help restore the public trust of the community in the School Administration now and in the future and ensure the safety of our students attending Mansfield City Schools.
