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.

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.
