Protest Chevron’s “reckless pursuit of profits” @ Chevron HQ in San Ramon
May 25 @ 7:00 am – 11:00 am

Be there as the Annual General Meeting of Chevron shareholders gets underway, at a colorful and fun rally outside in support of human rights, environmental, economic and climate justice, and more! Organizers say: “Indigenous and campesino allies affected by Chevron in Ecuador will be accompanied by a First Nations representative from Canada to the meeting. Allies from affected communities in Richmond, California will join the event. They will all have two things in common: They all come from communities that have suffered the dire impacts of Chevron’s reckless pursuit of profits, and they’re all fighting back.”


The Richmond Progressive Alliance is a co-sponsor of the rally. The event’s FB page gives a full and up-to-date list of all the co-sponsors.

Transportation from Richmond and the East Bay is being planned.

Our communities know what we need: to transform – not dismantle Oakland public schools!

Please RSVP: The Rally for the Schools Oakland Students Deserve

The fight for local control of our public schools in the 90’s was disrupted by the state take over of 2003. Over the last decade school closures and private interests in the school district have increased, while families lives are disrupted as they face being pushed out of Oakland.

Our communities know what we need: to transform – not dismantle Oakland public schools!
We need small class sizes for our kids, and to increase teacher retention!
Our schools and families need to be stabalized and invested in – not moved around or shut down!
Our children need to be inspired by culturally relevant curriculum designed and taught by teachers in our communities – not cramming to memorize test driven lesson plans taught by teachers who just moved to Oakland.

Hundreds of Oakland community members and educators have spent their lives working to re-design and transform our schools to be culturally relevent community run schools.
This critical work cannot happen when OUSD leadership, in collaboration with private interests, undermines our public schools and overrides parent/student/educators input in major decisions that affect our children and schools.
Join the Schools Oakland Students Deserve coalition Weds, May 25th to learn about how the dismantling of Oakland public schools is connected to gentrification and about the work being done to transform Oakland public schools for all students!! #takebackOUSD #ReclaimOurSchools
