1123 Lake Street
Sandpoint, ID, 83864

Dear Mayor Rognstad,

The Human Rights Education Institute’s Board of Directors would like to join you and the members of the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force in denouncing the hate-filled actions of the individuals responsible for the distribution of offensive emails and propaganda flyers. As members of the larger community of north Idaho, we stand united with the Sandpoint community in protecting the rights of all citizens and in promoting the value of all humanity.

As you are aware, our mission is to celebrate diversity and human rights through education, raising awareness and promoting inclusivity. If you see an opportunity for HREI to partner with the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force or other concerned citizens in Sandpoint to provide educational programs, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We will keep you and the good citizens of Sandpoint in our thoughts and prayers as you deal with the hurtful and potentially harmful unjust actions that have occurred.


Lita Burns, PhD.
Board of Directors President
