We are excited to introduce our Spring 2022 Teacher Political Leader Fellows! This is our 2nd cohort of amazing teacher leaders from across Oakland public charter and district schools. Our 12 fellows are joining our community of leaders who are committed to lifting our voices, sharing our stories, and fighting to increase access to quality schools for all of Oakland students.
Our FIA Teacher Political Leader Fellowship is a two month long program for teacher leaders who have expressed a commitment to educational equity, school quality, and family choice. They will participate in civic activities like registering youth and families to vote, canvassing in the community, and writing op-eds to elevate the voice of teacher leaders committed to building voting power. This fellowship will build the leadership capacity of our teacher fellows as champions for their schools and for quality schools for all Oakland students. They will leave the fellowship with a deeper understanding of the education landscape and a plan to mobilize voters across Oakland for the 2022 election.
Over the next few weeks, we will highlight our fellows and share their stories.
