WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 22, 2022) – Today, Democrats for Education Reform D.C. (DFER D.C.) announced its endorsement of Carisa Stanley Beatty, a candidate for the Ward 5 seat on the D.C. State Board of Education. The general election is on November 8, 2022.

“As the only native Washingtonian and Black mother running for the Ward 5 seat on the D.C. State Board of Education, Carisa Stanley Beatty is an equity champion that will fight for all families to have a seat at the table,” said DFER D.C. State Director Jessica Giles. 

“Carisa Stanley Beatty knows every student needs a safe and secure place to live, play, and learn. She has a track record of creating affordable opportunities for families to own their home in the District of Columbia. She created D.C. Open Doors, which provides financial assistance to those seeking to own their home, and the HomeSaver Program, which prevents homes from going into foreclosure. When elected, she will work to improve safe passage to and from school.

“Carisa is laser-focused on educational equity. She will work to enhance social-emotional supports, increase out-of-school time programming, and ensure all students are ready to enter into high-demand, well-paid careers. 

“Carisa will put ward five students and families first and fight for them daily. She is the ward five education champion we need in office.”
