“If we don’t get the quality education that we need to succeed,
then we are being set up to fail,”
– Karen Calderon, a Hamilton High student
Defend Public Education
We believe public education has the ability to open doors to academic excellence, to address the economic, racial and social inequities in our society and to empower young people to think critically, be collaborative and change the world around them.
We believe that all students deserve access to a fully-funded, high-quality public education.
We believe that all publicly funded schools should have similar standards of transparency and accountability, equity and access for all students.
We believe parents, students and the public should help shape and transform their neighborhood schools to be truly community schools, locally grown and built by the neighborhood they serve.
Hope that this time with loved ones is full of joy and rest.
We are beyond grateful for the passion, love and energy UTLA educators put into advocating for their schools and students. https://t.co/DPTqCgCDuZ
Los Angeles voters chose a future prioritizing strong public schools in this election. UTLA educators led the way.

Our hearts go out to those grieving the shooting in VA. It is a tragedy that we are not safe from gun violence in our workplaces and communities.
We cannot tolerate this anymore. We need #GVP legislation now.
