Marysville Residents Promote Inclusiveness

Many Marysville residents are responding to encourage a conversation about diversity after racist comments were made by a former candidate running for Marysville City Council. One resident, Jason Stier, who is also  Principal of Riverview East High School in East China, has started a campaign to display yard signs throughout the city. Stier said he believes that diversity is not just about race, but about everyone having a different experience in life, with varying challenges, strengths, and weaknesses they bring to the table. As a former art educator, Stier decided to design a yard sign with a simple message on it, “Marysville, where everybody is welcome.” Scott Forster, President of ForSports and a fellow Marysville resident, said he was contacted by Jason about making signs. The signs are now available for purchase on the ForSports Facebook page or website.
