ORGANIZING, ADVOCATING, AND TAKING ACTION FOR EQUITY IN OUSD 

© 2019 • Equity Allies for OUSD

  • We do not know best about what other families need.  Our role is to listen, to learn, and to show up in times, places, and ways based on the guidance of others;

  • Our lives and futures are tied up with those of others in our community.  We push ourselves to look beyond surface-level benefits to understand how what is best for the collective is best for us too;

  • We recognize that moving towards equity involves us relinquishing our privilege, power, and resources;

  • We make decisions through a lens and vision of equity;

  • We strive to “bring people in” and provide opportunities and conduits to take steps -- small or large -- towards educational equity in Oakland;

  • We care about all children in Oakland.  And, we prioritize the needs of children and schools in the Oakland Unified School District when necessary, particularly Black and Brown students and/or youth from low-income and/or non-English-dominant families.
