“The Garfield High School Football Team has taken a powerful, united stance with the hope of being a catalyst for positive dialogue and change. The youth and their coaches have put a great deal of thought and heart into their decision to take a knee at their games. The team has worked together to create a detailed statement explaining their decision.
I commend them for their convictions and support their desire to be a catalyst for a better future. I ask our community to support our young people, our team and our leaders. We invite and welcome you to get involved with all things Garfield.”
