Our North Star

All families across Oakland’s 78 square miles know their children will realize their full brilliance and potential at every public school in any neighborhood. Our community continually takes collective responsibility to reimagine, create, and improve a public education system where success is not predicated by race and class.

Empowered Families

All Oakland children need parents, grandparents, guardians, and mentors who can help choose a school that will help them reach their potential. We support Oakland Unified and Enroll Oakland in providing information and reaching families who didn’t even know they had options.

Our city needs families and students who push our city leaders to put children first. We partner with The Oakland REACH and Energy Convertors to raise public awareness of inequities in our system and advocate for policy changes like The Opportunity Ticket.
