We, the Classified Employees at Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD) are speaking out on the gender and racial discrimination and safety concerns that are occurring within SMMUSD. Classified workers have met and brought such concerns to the attention of management. Yet, this misconduct continues. We have been disrespected, belittled, and harassed for speaking up on such matters and we are demanding these actions cease and desist and you intervene in these matters.

When such actions are done to one, it affects us all. We are standing together for an immediate resolution. It is time for our voices to be heard and for SMMUSD to respect all Classified Employees and change the culture that had been in place for far too long.
