Last Thursday, August 4, untrained, unlicensed, third-party security providers contracted by OUSD violently assaulted parents and community members at Parker School, injuring at least eleven people and sending four to the ER. Meanwhile, the district has fired at least two educators who are active participants in the fight against school closures, including the Parker Liberation in East Oakland.

If you don’t think a public school district should be sending private security after community members or firing teachers for protesting school closures, make your voice heard! Send a letter directly to OUSD leadership demanding they stop firing teachers and attacking the community! Use the pre-written letter, or edit it however you see fit.
