Oakland Unified School District Members, Community Protest School Closures in Black Communities
Come to the OUSD Board of Education Special Meeting Tues. 2/8 at 5pm to Speak Out


Oakland Unified School District is trying to close as many as 14 schools in Black and brown communities. Hundreds of union members, parents, students, and community members came out Friday afternoon to protest the school closures, and SEIU 1021 OUSD Chapter Vice President Donneva Reid addressed the crowd.

The OUSD Board of Education is holding a special meeting TOMORROW, Tues., Feb. 8, starting at 5pm, at which they will be voting on the school closures.

We MUST show up and make sure they know we won’t stand by silently while they destroy entire school communities, cause even further distress and upheaval to our students, and lay off hardworking staff.

WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 8, beginning at 5pm.

WHERE: Via Zoom: Agenda and instructions for public comment here.
