A Conversation with Diane Ravitch and Jitu Brown // NPE Action and KPFA Friday Oct. 13th, 7:30pm Oakland Technical High School Auditorium

"Jitu Brown, National Director of the Journey for Justice Alliance (J4J) is a long-time community organizer born on Chicago’s south side. He is a product of Chicago’s public school system and is a proud parent and husband. Jitu started volunteering for the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO), the oldest black-led organizing community based organization in Chicago in 1991. He eventually joined the staff as Education Organizer in 2006 and organized in the Kenwood Oakland neighborhood for over 17 years bringing parents, students, teachers and community members together to collectively participate in the education system by developing various educational initiatives and battle back against efforts to systematically disinvest in, close and privatize schools in Chicago.

In his role as National Director for J4J, he leads an alliance of grassroots community, youth, and parent-led organizations in 23 cities across the country demanding community-driven alternatives to the privatization of and dismantling of public schools systems. He has brought great energy and focus to the connection between the attacks on public education and the disempowerment of African American communities all across the country.

 

He was one of 12 parents, grandparents and community members who put their bodies on the line in a 34-day long hunger strike to save Walter H. Dyett High School in Chicago, the last open enrollment High School in the historic Bronzeville community.  As a result of their gallant efforts, Dyett High School is the first closed school in the country that has re-opened as an open-enrollment, neighborhood school. His dynamic organizing in our neighborhoods, cities, and nationally for an equitable and just education system is based on a belief in the potential of all children and the rights of parents, youth, and communities to participate in all aspects of planning and decision-making.

 

The #WeChoose is a national coalition comprising of powerful education justice organizations to focus attention on U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' continued attempt to dismantle and corporatize America's public education system.


The #WeChoose campaign includes: Network for Public Education, BadAss Teachers Association, Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools, The Advancement Project, the Education Justice Network, Alliance for Education, Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University, Dignity in Schools, Save Our Schools, Institute for Democratic Education in America and Journey for Justice Alliance, whose combined membership represents millions of Americans and together are joining forces to call out DeVos/Trump and hold Democrats accountable in the upcoming education budget hearings."

 

Jitu and Diane will discuss U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' continued attempt to dismantle and corporatize America's public education system, and the resistance being organized by the Network for Public Education and the Journey for Justice’s #WeChoose campaign.

#WeChoose:

  • No More Public School Closures
  • A Moratorium on School Privatization 
  • The Creation of 10,000 Sustainable Community Schools 
  • End Zero Tolerance Policies in Public Schools NOW 
  • National Equity Assessment 
  • Stop the Attack on Black Teachers 
  • End State Takeovers, Appointed School Boards and Mayoral Control 
  • Eliminate the Over-Reliance on Standardized Tests in Public Schools

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health | Community Connections: Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"Seeking to prevent the early onset of mental illness in the youth population of Santa Clara County through early education and awareness, consistent treatment and community involvement, the Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope (REACH) Program launched its services in an effort to help address this growing mental health issue.

 

The program, based on the early detection models from the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Training Institute in Portland, Maine, is a collaboration of efforts between Momentum for Mental Health and Starlight Community Services.  The core mission of REACH is to help detect early warning signs of psychosis that may pose a threat to young adults, and to provide effective support and treatment.  Though often subtle, early symptoms of psychosis can be disabling and affect young people’s ability to complete schoolwork, interact socially, and accomplish daily tasks."...

"Join the 2018 Bus Trip for Education

Sign up for the May 15 event to meet with Legislators in Sacramento

 
":Since its inception, the Bus Trip has increased from a handful of concerned residents advocating for public education funding to over 200 in 2016 who were navigating through the new local control funding formula. 
 
What is the Sacramento Bus Trip for Education?
Each year, my office coordinates the Sacramento Bus Trip for Education, which takes education advocates, parents, students, community leaders and residents from our County to the state’s capitol to meet with their state legislators. Last year, more than 200 people filled four buses and spent the day meeting with dozens of state officials, senators and assembly members. 
 
Why is it important?
Bus Trip participants gain an in-depth knowledge of public education issues ranging from grades K-12, Community Colleges and four-year universities. Participants receive updates on current legislative proposals, a status update on school funding, and other key public education efforts. More importantly, Bus Trip participants have an opportunity to voice their interests and concerns directly to state legislators about public education issues.
 
When is the Bus Trip and where do the buses leave from?
This year’s Sacramento Bus Trip will occur on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. The buses will leave at 6:30 a.m. from the VTA Transit Center at Eastridge Mall in San Jose and return to the same location around 5 p.m.
 
How much does it cost to attend?
The Bus Trip is FREE for everyone. It also includes a light breakfast and lunch.
 
How do I sign up?
