Oakland’s teachers, students, and families are ready for a historic strike for public education. The stakes are high. In Oakland and all across the country public education is under attack.  We support Oakland teachers’ fight for schools that our students deserve. Smaller class sizes, more student support services, a living wage for teachers and to keep schools open.  SEIU 1021 and AFSCME have already joined the fight!  Let’s all show them our support!  Here’s how you can help:
