If we lose sports, our kids will be ROBBED of priceless opportunities to grow, learn, and make life long friendships while off the streets.
We CANNOT allow ourselves to let down our youth and take away from their highschool and middle school experience.
As I student I know the value of athletic achievement in a structured education.
Without the role sports has played in my life, my story - inner city to Truman Scholar, Schwarzman Scholar, youngest elected Muslim in America - is NOT possible.
I know that sports can be used as a form of stress relief, a form of socializing, a form of healthy competition, a form of catharsis, and I KNOW that sports are an avenue for joy.
That's why when the administration cut middle school sports last year I FOUGHT to bring them back.
This year the budget projects cutting the entire middle school and high school sports program. We CANNOT let that happen but I NEED your help.
I’m only 1 vote on the board and I can only persevere so much, but with YOUR help we can ensure that the sports program remains.
I need you to sign and share this petition to make sure people know that our sports are important.
Feel free to tell stories about how sports impacted you! Help me #SaveOurSports
I started this petition because...
As a student, I remember walking out of the classroom at 3:05 looking forward to putting my stresses behind me and unwinding with some basketball.
Sports were a saving grace, two hours a day I could be worry free and just enjoy being a student.
Unfortunately, not everyone sees it this way.
Last year the administration decided to cut middle school sports.
I fought with every ounce of energy in my body to bring them back.
This year BOTH middle school and high school sports have been cut in our preliminary budget.
We CANNOT let this happen.
I am only 1 vote on the board, but with YOUR help we can ensure that the sports program remains.
I need you to sign and share this petition to make sure Jersey City knows that OUR SPORTS ARE IMPORTANT!
Please share stories about how sports have INSPIRED, UPLIFTED, and SUPPORTED you. Help me #SaveOurSports
