Tay Anderson is 20 years old and lives in Denver, Colorado. Tay is a proud union member in Aurora Public Schools serving the Hinkey High School community. In 2017 he became the youngest person in the history of Colorado to seek public office. He has taken a stand to support women’s rights, African American rights, Latinx rights, LGBTQ+ rights, Indigenous rights, Muslim rights, and disabled persons’ rights.
The passion and perseverance he has comes from his grandmother a retired educator of 35 years, who has spent the last six years in the hospital. It has been devastating for Tay not to have her watch him grow and accomplish his goals, but he carries her spirit through the lessons she has taught him.
