For more than twenty years, Oakland Unified School District Director Jumoke Hinton Hodge has worked in partnership with Oakland residents, parents, leaders, teachers, and organizations to improve education, health and civic engagement in West Oakland, downtown, and throughout the city. For Jumoke, this has meant helping lead the creation of community programs, building successful coalitions with education and health organizations, and serving in leadership positions while investing in the success of local students and neighbors.
Our community of parents, teachers, and community members interviewed candidates for the District 3 school board seat, and the feedback was clear - we need Jumoke Hinton-Hodge on the board for 4 more years. If you are ready to help us get her elected, sign up here to join for a neighborhood walk or phone bank.
