State Superintendent of Public Instruction Candidates Forum

Saturday, September 15th

11am

Holy Names University, 3500 Mountain Blvd, Oakland

RSVP HERE

Black Women have stood in the forefront of every political battle, particularly in California. We have led the fight for equity that many benefit from today. Unfortunately, we are not experiencing the fruits of our labor on many different fronts. Education is one of the most concerning.

Our children are failing.

As Black Women Leaders, Mothers, Grandmothers, Caregivers and Registered Voters, we have some questions! So #Sistallect, #CaliforniaBlackMedia, Black Women Organized for Political Action (#BWOPA) and some powerhouse Black Women Leaders from throughout the state came together to host a forum for the Superintendent for Public Instruction race with the two candidates – @TonyThurmond and @MarshallTuck.

Join us at the Candidates Forum #BlackStudentsMatter #BlackMamasMatters #RespectBlackWomen

New SF Board President Malia Cohen!

Supervisor Malia Cohen was elected board of supervisors president, replacing London Breed who will be taking over as mayor of San Francisco. 

It was a unanimous vote during Tuesday's board of supervisors meeting where Breed presided over her last meeting as president. Breed had said she was stepping down to focus on preparing for her new job as mayor. Breed starts her new job July 11.
