© 2019 • Equity Allies for OUSD

School Representatives are parents/guardians from Oakland schools who serve as the liaison between their school community and the Equity Allies.


We ask that School Representatives commit to the following:



  • Disseminate communications from the Equity Allies to their school communities through school listservs and social media pages, by distributing flyers, etc., and disseminating communications through other channels (neighborhood listservs, NextDoor, social media, etc).


  • On request, mobilize parents within their school community to take action around Equity Allies campaigns. For example, the Equity Allies Leadership Committee might ask the School Representatives to get 10 parents at their school to make phone calls to a local official, or collect 50 signatures on a petition, or recruit 3 parents to attend a meeting.


  • Join the Equity Allies School Representatives listserv and/or Slack channel to both learn and share information about issues, events, and other news impacting their school community and OUSD as a whole, that relate to educational equity and social justice.


Additionally, School Representatives are:


  • Invited to every EA Leadership Committee meeting, but this is not a requirement;


  • Invited to officially join the EA Leadership Committee (more information about this commitment is here).

  • Expected to help recruit a replacement from their school site when they are ready to transition out of the School Representative role
