Pledge of Allegiance up for discussion again by SBCC Board of Trustees

Posted at 12:20 PM, Feb 12, 2019

The Pledge of Allegiance will be the topic of discussion once again at the next Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees meeting.

The board will be considering a resolution to include voluntary recitation of the pledge at future meetings.

The pledge was originally removed from the meetings because the board’s president said it has ties to anti-immigrant roots.

It was re-instated last month but not everyone was happy.

The board will consider the resolution Thursday at 4 p.m. at Thornton Auditorium on Wake Campus, 300 N. Turnpike Road, a change of venue from regular meetings.
