Halla is an organizer, a youth worker, and a fierce advocate for an education system that meets all students' needs. Through years of organizing with students and new voters and, now, working alongside students across Minnesota to advise stakeholders and government officials on youth issues, Halla has worked to build power with those most impacted by the decisions made.
She’s running for the Saint Paul School Board because she believes that successful governing lies in the relationships with our students, educators, and community members. Halla believes that our students and their experiences must be centered on addressing the historic inequities in our school districts. She will be a champion in the fight for fully funded schools, the hiring and recruiting of additional teachers of color, and a voice for those who have too often failed to see themselves reflected in government spaces.
