Triston Ezidore announced his campaign for Culver City Unified School District School Board election this coming November.
Triston is a graduate of Culver City High School, where he was a student leader focused on creating an inclusive campus environments for all students. Triston’s leadership and first-hand experience in the district make him the ideal choice to help lead the district to an equitable future.
On the launch of the campaign, Triston said, “This campaign is a promise to the students, families, and staff of Culver City Unified School District — a commitment to address our hardest challenges. In order to do that, we need champions from communities most affected leading the way.”
Culver City Council Member Alex Fisch said, “ With Triston, Culver City voters have the rare opportunity to elect someone with firsthand CCUSD experience, a demonstrated commitment to fostering a rich learning environment for all, and the flexibility and intelligence to lead the district through anything.”
Triston is the son of a Vietnamese immigrant, and a staunch believer in a school district built for everyone. He got his start in movement organizing on the grounds of Culver City High School where he pushed for bold systemic change, and worked in coalition with his peers to challenge site leadership and the school board to root our district in anti-racism.
He has proven his commitment to public service with immense involvement in the school districts Equity Advisory Council, Culver City for More Homes, POC4Change, Culver City Democratic Club, and an array of Culver City High School site committees. He says, “As a former student in the district, I saw first-hand the inequities that run rampant in our education system – this work is deeply personal to me”
Triston’s campaign has already received prominent early Culver City endorsements from Councilmember Yasmine-Imani McMorrin, Councilmember Alex Fisch, School Board Vice-President Paula Amezola de Herrera, and board members Dr. Kelly Kent, Dr. Tashon McKeithan, and Summer McBride, and Frm. Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells.
If elected, Triston would be the first black-male to serve on the school board, a historic addition to an already diverse body.
