We did it.

In Latest News

Dear friends,

The election results are in, and it's a clean sweep.

Thanks to your hard work and support, Oakland voters are sending Jumoke Hinton Hodge, Rosie Torres, and James Harris to represent students on the school board

This is a transformative victory for Oakland students and it would not have been possible without you.

Our GO network -- nearly 300 individual volunteers -- knocked on more than 11,500 doors and made over 60,000 calls to Oakland voters in support of our candidates. And your generous donations paid for mail that helped ensure voters knew our candidates and what was at stake. Thank you!

We're celebrating tonight, and toasting the commitment and extraordinary effort of so many parents and educators who made this happen.

Tomorrow, we move forward with a new chapter for public education in Oakland. 

Our GO network is committed to ensuring our students have education champions in elected leadership with the skills and values to manifest our vision of an Oakland where all children receive the schooling and support they need to live successful, fulfilling lives.

Thank you for your continued support. This is a very big win for Oakland.

With our deepest thanks,
Jonathan and the GO team
