WHO WE ARE

We are part of a national movement of parents, health professionals, equity advocates and allies working to open public schools for the mental health and educational needs of our children.


As pre-K - 12 Berkeley Unified School District parents, we are advocating to open our schools for live in-person instruction as soon as possible.

EVENTS

We are currently planning a 1/13 sit-in supporting educational equity at Thousand Oaks elementary school,

and future actions locally and statewide in coalition with other parents groups seeking transparency and accountability for our kids.

 

Join our mailing list and stay on top of future events.
