Today, we stand by Ferguson to tell the nation and the world that Black Life Matters.

As communities across the country come together to rally, speak, protest, and heal, we urge you to support the young people in your community to take action, to speak out about how this tragedy affects their lives, and to demand a fair and just system.

Tonight CFJ Oakland students threw it DOWN with their presence and powerful testimony. They let the Board know that the creation of the LCAP Student Advisory Committee shows that OUSD values STUDENT VOICE. This WIN will be the 1st step to ensure that student voices are reflected in the district's budget and accountability plans. #STUDENTVOICEMATTERS

With Local Control Funding, Students Seek Greater Voice - New America Media

“By taking away our voice you learn nothing of our struggles making it impossible to have our needs met. Today, you heard from not only me, but my colleagues that our schools are not all the same. That us students are not all the same. That we can't be counted as numbers.” - Pashael Dorsey, Oakland Student Leader

Last Thursday, The Student Voice Coalition brought together over 50 students representing 11 districts from across the State to testify before the State Board of Education and conduct the first-ever Silent Protest inside the boardroom.

Seeking help after being in a car accident, Renisha McBride,a 19-year-old young Black woman, knocked on the door of a home in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn Heights last Sunday. Instead of assisting her, the White homeowner Ted Wafe (54 years old) opened the door and shot McBride in the face with a single shotgun blast and killed her. She had knocked on several doors seeking help after the accident. #blacklivesmatter #justice4renisha #blackwomenmatter
