      Donate to BREAD FOR ED!

      Stand in solidarity with Oakland students and teachers!


      Oakland teachers are gearing up for a strike! Public education in Oakland is in a state of crisis-classes are overcrowded, and the Oakland Education Association (OEA) has been without a contract for over a year to win the schools their students deserve! 

      Oakland students and teachers need your support to win this fight! Bread for Ed is an effort to provide food for those during the strike that will not have access to such resources if they do not cross the picket line. There are 37,000 students and around 3,000 members of the Oakland Educators Association in this fight to defend the public school in Oakland. The vast majority of these students depend on free or reduced lunches, so this food fund is a critical show of solidarity with the Oakland community.

      OEA teachers are fighting to defend public education by campaigning for a new contract that provides:

      1) Smaller class sizes

      2) More student support

      3) A living wage

      4) Halt to school closures

      From West Virginia to LA, teachers are standing up for themselves, their students, and public education. Please help save our schools and fight back against austerity. Donate today and please share widely!

      ¡Muestra tu solidaridad con los estudiantes y maestros de Oakland!

      ¡Los maestros de Oakland se están preparando para salir en huelga y luchar por las escuelas que nuestros alumnos merecen! La educación pública en Oakland está en crisis - hay demasiados alumnos en cada clase, los salarios de los maestros no alcanzan para vivir cerca de sus escuelas, y la Asociación de Educación de Oakland (OEA) ha estado sin contrato laboral por un año y medio. 

      Los estudiantes y maestros de Oakland necesitan tu apoyo para ganar esta lucha! “Bread for Ed” es una campaña para proveer alimentos para alumnos en escuelas solidarias y loncheras en las líneas de piquete. Hay 37,000 estudiantes y cerca de 3,000 miembros de la OEA que están luchando para defender la educación pública en Oakland. La mayoría de estos estudiantes dependen del almuerzo gratuito o subsidiado en las escuelas - este fondo alimentario es una demostración de solidaridad con la comunidad de Oakland.

      Los maestros de OEA luchan para defender la educación pública mediante una campaña por un contrato laboral que provee:

      1) Clases más pequeñas

      2) Más apoyo para los estudiantes

      3) Un salario decente

      4) Detener los cierres de escuelas

      Desde West Virginia a Los Ángeles, los maestros están luchando por sí mismos, sus estudiantes, y la educación pública. Por favor ayúdanos a salvar nuestras escuelas y defenderlas de la austeridad. ¡Dona hoy y por favor comparte esta campaña!

      Una nota: Según el pedido de OEA, los fondos serán colectados por East Bay DSA y pagados a los proveedores de alimento, y el dinero restante será mandado al fondo de solidaridad con la huelga (el fondo de apoyo a los miembros). East Bay DSA es una organización 501(c)(4) así que tus donaciones no son deducibles de impuestos.
