California Tenants Will See Cap on Rent Increases Under Bill Sent to Newsom

By |2019-09-12T16:18:52-07:00September 12th, 2019|People-Powered Politics|

Tenants across California will for the first time have protections against how much landlords can increase their rents after legislators on Wednesday narrowly approved a measure to cap annual rent hikes.

Justice for Hilda Rodriguez-Guzman

By |2019-08-30T16:27:35-07:00August 28th, 2019|TAS|

Hilda Rodriguez-Guzman is a valued South LA community resident, mother, educator, and, up until July 2019, a dedicated Health Services Coordinator at The Accelerated Schools. After 10 years of serving our students and families, Hilda was suddenly and unfairly let go by TAS. We believe Hilda was let go in retaliation for her activism. We condemn retaliation against an employee for union activism. Parents, community, students, and staff are demanding TAS bring Hilda back.

The Education Funding Crisis: Students Speak Out Crenshaw High student describes what insufficient funding at her school looks like.

By |2019-05-31T12:38:12-07:00May 31st, 2019|Measure EE|

Brooklynn Haylock, a tenth grader from Crenshaw High, paints a dire picture of what she sees at her school, and tells us why additional funding for schools like hers is so desperately needed. California is 44th in the nation in per student spending and students are at the center of this funding crisis. LAUSD currently spends about $13,230 annually per student (compared to $24,000 in New York and $22,000 in Boston). Brooklynn's testimony is what that looks like for many LAUSD students.
