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.

The history of redlining & disinvestment in BIPOC communities = huge disparities in green space across cities. This is reflected in our schools, w/ 35M students going to school in heat islands across the nation. Our students deserve greener schools!
