Register for our January 29 online panel on Ontario's healthcate crisis with expert guests.
The Toronto-Danforth NDP would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Jennifer Story for eight years of dedication and success as our TDSB School Trustee for Ward 15 Toronto-Danforth.
Jen, who today announced she'd not be running for re-election in this fall's municipal election, worked tirelessly to stop local school closures and, alongside child care advocates, expand access to school-aged childcare.
Jen has been a passionate advocate for equity in public schools. She partnered with community groups and student activists to end the police-in-schools program and modernize TDSB’s dress code. She also helped establish Ontario’s first urban K-12 Indigenous school right here in Toronto-Danforth.
Organizing with parents, unions and community groups in #TorontoDanforth and across Ontario, Jen fought to keep the modernized sex education curriculum. As our trustee, she was a leading advocate for COVID-safe schools and making COVID vaccines mandatory to attend Ontario public schools.
Jennifer Story, your work standing up for a strong, equitable, inclusive public school system has been invaluable. On behalf of Toronto-Danforth and the students, families and education workers you served, thank you Jen.
