T-shirts and bread
If you are looking for a way to help out, here are some easy things you can do:
Proceeds go to OEA’s membership assistance fund which gives strike hardship grants to teachers who are actively participating in a strike. More than shirts have been purchased already. Printed at Movement Ink, a shop in Oakland’s Laurel District. They’re cute. They’re red. And you should get one.
Parents teachers students & community started this petition to show the OUSD board and Superintendent Dr. Kyla Johnson-Trammell that voters see what is happening and that we stand in solidarity with the students and their families. The list is growing fast!
Bread for Ed is a campaign to provide meals at solidarity schools, food trucks at picket lines. The vast majority of Oakland students depend on free or reduced lunches, so this food fund is a critical show of solidarity with the Oakland community. Give a delicious donation.
Get updates on the latest about the strike and other ways you can get involved. If you like to post stories you’re passionate about on facebook, you can share these posts to let more people know about the students in Oakland.
