STRONG SCHOOLS,
STRONG OAKLAND

Let’s reclaim the resources our schools deserve!

Oakland schools are not getting the resources we need because wealthy corporations in California have not been required to pay their fair share. Please sign the state-wide petition TODAY to get Schools and Communities First on the November ballot.

Our Goal: 6,000 signatures collected in Oakland by 03/2020

  • Would require mega-corporations to pay taxes on the fair market value of their commercial property.
  • Would NOT impact property taxes
    on ANY residential properties.
$ billion

What will this money allow our school sites to do?

  • Ensure every student feels safe, cared for and gets the supports they need.
  • Support our highest-need students – so ALL kids succeed.
  • Recruit, retain and support great teachers.
  • Fund critical services such as counselors, health clinics, parent centers, arts, sports, rigorous academic supports and interventions.
