South LA Community to TAS Board – We Demand Respect! TAS Board President Juli Quinn Steps Down

On December 5, South LA parents, community members, and residents descended at the Accelerated Schools (TAS) board meeting to present a list of urgent community demands. The board also made the callous decision to hire four, private armed guards to welcome the community for a regular, public board meeting. It is clear our demands are more relevant than ever. Let’s continue to stand together to hold charter schools like TAS accountable!

Last month we sent out a call to march on the Accelerated Schools in our efforts to bring justice to our beloved community of South LA.

On August 29, dozens of South LA community members, TAS parents and alumni came together to demand that the Board of Trustees return Hilda to her position as Health Services Coordinator. Over ten community members spoke powerfully and directly to the Board about how Hilda has touched their lives and urged the board to reconsider its abrupt termination of Hilda.

Justice for Hilda Rodriguez-Guzman

By |August 28th, 2019|Tags: |

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.
