I needed to say this.

In Latest News

Thank you.

We have been working to elect great leaders to the Oakland school board for more than a year. The number and generosity of people involved has been truly inspiring and unprecedented.

All told, nearly 300 volunteers have knocked on over 11,500 doors and made over 64,000 calls to Oakland voters. In the last month, over 100 different people have volunteered each week.

It has been an amazing, community-powered effort. Take a moment and admire your work: click here for a photo gallery of people phone banking click here for a photo gallery of people phone banking and walking neighborhoods, and click here for a video about why folks have been volunteering their time.

Win or lose -- and we're working to win! -- school board elections in Oakland will never be the same. Once sleepy races -- 8 of the last 14 were uncontested -- are now the talk of the town. In recent weeks, our unprecedented effort has been featured in The Oakland Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, and on KQED radio. Last week, all three of our candidates were endorsed by both The Oakland Tribune and the East Bay Express.

Please join us tonight for our Election Night Party at Miss Pearl's Jam House in Jack London Square. We'll be keeping our eye on the local races while we watch the national races unfold on TV.

We'd love for you to join us.

Thank you for believing in and investing in our vision of an Oakland where all children receive the schooling and support they need to live successful, fulfilling lives.

Without your support, this would be just another Oakland school board election. Instead, it has the potential to be transformational.
