Tay Anderson – DPS Board Member and Community Organizer

Tay Anderson is the youngest Colorado elected official in state history at 21 years old. The DPS graduate was elected to be the At – Large Director on the Denver Public School Board in 2019. He is a former DPS educator and community organizer who has served in leadership roles in the Colorado Democratic Party, the Colorado House of Representatives.

He has been an outspoken advocate against gun violence and in the past week he has been one of the key organizers of the peaceful protests that have brought thousands of people to downtown Denver calling for an end to police brutality.

“We need to be able to make sure everybody is safe in our city but also we need to demand justice for those who have been unjustly killed at the hands of law enforcement or other individuals that have consistently got away with crimes against Black men and Black women.” —  Tay Anderson.

Listen to Tay Anderson speak with Tish Beauford about how DPS is coping with the coronavirus pandemic and the recent protests in Denver:
