Surveillance programs could jeopardize protestors’ pursuit of justice
June 19, 2020
The cascade of protests against racism and police brutality in response to the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd sent a shockwave through the consciousness of America. The grief, love, and solidarity on display seems to be on a larger scale than ever before. When our brothers and sisters marched in Ferguson in 2014, they lacked the groundswell of support across the country that we’re witnessing now.

Black Los Angeles Makes Demands in Light of COVID-19 and Rates of Black Death
April 16, 2020
In response to community pressure, last week, Los Angeles County released initial racial data on who is contracting and dying from COVID-19. The rate of Black death is twice the Black population share. Black people constitute 9% of the population, but 17% of the County’s COVID-19 deaths.

A New Leader for the LACCD Board of Trustees? There’s Only One Choice
July 10, 2017
When the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees elects its new President next week, they have a chance to make a statement--they can elect a leader who both looks like and understands the students the district serves. Why is it important? The new President will become the face of the district, and with nearly four out of five students coming from minority backgrounds, that face should reflect the composition of the colleges. That's why we are urging the LACCD Board of Trustees to elevate Sydney Kamlager-Dove to its presidency. ... read more »
