Sacramento: Fund our public schools now!
May 22, 2019
We need full and fair funding for our neighborhood public schools — not more privatization or school closures! Oakland educators are back in action, and ready to take the fight to Sacramento.
Are you with us? Join us on May 22 for a day of action!
We’ll be providing buses for public education fighters to get from Oakland to Sacramento. You are also welcome to self-organize carpools and caravans! Please sign up here so we know how many buses to arrange for our Oakland contingent: https://tinyurl.com/May22CADayofAction
9 AM: SACRAMENTO-BOUND BUSES LEAVE (from two Oakland locations)
2:15 PM: SACRAMENTO-BOUND BUSES LEAVE (from two Oakland locations)
6:30 PM: RETURNING BUSES DEPART FOR OAKLAND
WHY WE FIGHT
Our strike laid the groundwork for a real movement to defend and improve public education in Oakland, and inspired educators all over California to stand up and fight back. Though we won significant gains for Oakland students, educators, and families—such as the ﬁrst class size reductions for grades 4-12 in 37 years, more support for newcomers and other students with special needs, and a raise to help keep teachers in Oakland—our ﬁght for well-funded schools is far from over. We’re just getting started!
We’re joining with educators and students from all over California for a day of action at the State Capitol to demand the full funding of our public schools, common-sense charter school accountability, and social & racial justice.

You’re welcome to come for the whole day, half a day, or just a few hours. More details TBA.
