Students remind us: Make the struggle beautiful

Students remind us: Make the struggle beautiful

There were a dozen of us, and you could barely hear the song we were dancing to: Aretha Franklin’s “Think.” But there we were in front of Venice High, mostly in sync, definitely in the rain, decked in our finest red, dancing for public education and calling on our community, our city, our state, our entire nation, to think about what they were trying to do to us.

Amid the sea of red shirts that flooded Los Angeles in early January, it may have been easy to miss those worn by the members of Eastside Padres Contra La Privatización.

Another day where we are waking up to more horrific loss of life.

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.

We need LAUSD to clean the air for our kids, address the climate crisis, and support good union jobs! Join us tomorrow afternoon to urge the LAUSD Board of Education to switch to an all electric school bus fleet by 2035.🚌⚡️ https://t.co/vt3EqaSVPA ReclaimLASchls photo
Lucy Garcia with Climate Reality Project says one way to combat climate anxiety is to talk about it in the classroom. When it’s ignored, "That's where the trauma is worsened." https://t.co/K9jo2oCHum
