According to Wikipedia,

"The raised fist, or the clenched fist, is a long standing image of mixed meaning, often a symbol of political solidarity. It is also a common symbol of communism, and can also be used as a salute to express unity, strength, or resistance."

Below is an email excerpt from a concerned citizen re the tweet pictured in prior slide (email dated June 9, 2021):

"After everything that has happened at the High School with a suspected shooter, I am shocked that you would support and give admiration to a young woman who thinks this of our police community, especially knowing how selfless our police were during that terrifying time.  As we move forward as a community and continue to have meetings regarding your plan for equity, I would strongly suggest you know who is on your side and who is representing your cause."
