In the District 6 School Board race, we have endorsed Renato Almanzor, a community leader and education justice advocate who has a proven track record of working to improve Oakland public schools. We need to work side by side to make sure he's elected.
Whether you can commit to walking with us every week or you can only phone bank twice, we need your help to make sure that voters know that Renato is the strongest candidate for our students.
At the Garden Party, Robert Wilkins, the CEO of the YMCA of the East Bay and a board member for GO Public Schools Leadership Center, shared inspiring words about working alongside the people next to you to strengthen and "rebuild the wall" of our education system:
"The work of GO is rebuilding that wall, and we can rebuild it if we commit ourselves to doing that which we are capable of doing, and that we stick to it shoulder to shoulder, so that when there is opposition, we don't separate ... because we have a mind to work and we know that it is important for us to rebuild walls."
Last week, GO Public Schools announced our endorsement of Dr. Renato Almanzor for the District 6 school board seat. Renato is a leader with many years of experience training teachers, principals, and nonprofit leaders, who also has the perspective and insight of an OUSD parent. Renato is passionate about improving Oakland's schools and we want to make sure he gets elected.
