Time is not on our side

Election Day will be here in less than a month. This is the time when we are counting on your support to help elect effective leaders to the Oakland school board.
If you've made a committment to participate this election season, now is the time to follow through.
Our goal is to connect with 4,800 voters this weekend, and talk to them about the candidates we've endorsed in District 7 (James Harris), District 5 (Rosie Torres), and District 3 (Jumoke Hinton Hodge).
On Saturday, we're meeting up in the following locations at 10am to walk door-to-door to talk with voters. We'd love to have you join us.
- District 3 (to support Jumoke Hinton Hodge): Meet at Whole Foods near Westlake
- District 5 (to support Rosie Torres): Meet at Edna Brewer Middle School in Glenview
- District 7 (to support James Harris): Meet at Bishop O'Dowd High School off 98th & Golf Links
If you can't make it out to walk this weekend, we need help phone banking as well. We're calling voters about our endorsed candidates Monday through Thursday, starting at 5:30pm. Dinner is provided.
It is so inspiring for our GO staff to support you -- our incredibly busy and dedicated network of educators and families who are making time for this work -- to make our collective voice and impact felt on election day. Our children and youth deserve to have the best educational leaders.
Vote-by-mail ballots are going out this week, and we need to communicate with voters before they cast their ballots.
We don't want to wake up the morning after Election Day and wonder if we could have done more. I look forward to seeing you out there.
