We’re so excited to be kicking off our election season with the announcement of who our community has chosen to endorse for the OUSD School Board races in District 3 and District 7!
It was inspiring to see over 200 of you over the last few weeks as we gathered on Zoom to interview candidates for the four school board seats that are up for election – this process is truly powered by community: Over 150 of those who attended are families of children in our public schools, and 40 are educators. Over 70% of interview participants identify as people of color, and 31 are primarily Spanish-speaking.
Spoiler Alert: We’re so excited to be supporting these candidates with deep roots in Oakland and deep roots in our schools as alumni and educators. Watch the video to hear from them directly!
Now that we’ve made our endorsements, we need you to help us get these excellent candidates elected. Click here to find out how you can volunteer or donate, and to get a sneak peek of fun GO Vote swag we’ll have for our amazing volunteers.
Stay tuned – tomorrow, we’ll be announcing who we endorsed in District 1 and District 5 tomorrow! Be sure you’ve liked our Facebook Page and setup notifications to be the first to know.
