We are educators and we miss seeing our students in classrooms. But returning to schools without proper health and safety protections exposes our children and their families to COVID-19 — which puts them at greater risk of illness and death. 

Let’s be clear: The pressure to return to LA public schools unsafely is political. It is not science.

That is why we must stand united for a safe return to schools that our students and community members deserve. 

On Saturday, February 20, a 100-car caravan stretched through downtown Los Angeles sponsored by Students Deserve, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Los Angeles Alliance for New Economy, Eastside Padres Contra La Privatización, Reclaim Our Schools Los Angeles, United Teachers Los Angeles.

From the Valley to the Harbor to LAUSD's doorstep, educators, parents, students and community members showed our power.

LAUSD sure can't ignore us now.

Educators are fighting for schools that provide needed services to our community from job training to after school activities to basic needs support.
