"The study found caregivers of young children in low-income unstable housing are subjected to significant negative health effects, becoming two times more likely than those in stable housing to be in fair or poor health, and almost three times more likely to report depressive symptoms. Children aged four and under in these families had almost a 20 percent increased risk of hospitalization, and over a 25 percent increased risk of developmental delays."

High rents making you sick? It's a thing.

"A stable home is the foundation to thrive. It is important for us to start thinking about creating more of that foundation so people can have a fair shot and start getting ahead."

Countdown to expand ban on ‘willful defiance’ suspensions in California schools

With just months to go before California’s SB607 ban on “willful defiance” suspensions in early primary grades is set to expire, youth advocates are pushing for passage of a bill that would both continue the ban and expand it to include all grades from K through 12. Advocates say suspensions for behaviors teachers & admin deem “defiant” or “disruptive” are too subjective & are disproportionately meted out to students of color, via EdSource

With the current ban on such suspensions for grades K-3 set to expire in July, a bill that would expand the ban to include all schools is making its way through the state Legislature.

Oakland schools balance improving student performance while making deep budget cuts​

Major shifts on the horizon for OUSD as budget plans are due this month, with ACOE lending support in these difficult decision making processes. We hope effective changes can be put in place to address the current inequalities in education outcomes in Oakland.

Oakland Unified is one of 28 districts that could face state intervention if at least three student subgroups don't improve in the next two years.

Building Blocks for Health Equity - Alameda County

Healthy birth weight is an indicator ICPC tracks in our Scorecard - check out this recent report from the East Bay Express which highlights disparities among child births in our neighborhoods.

"Black women in the East Bay are also nearly three times as likely to give birth to low birth weight babies — infants born weighing less than 5.5 pounds — than are white women."

Today, Children Now released the 2018 California Children’s Report Card, which grades the state on its ability to support better outcomes for kids, from birth to age 26, through early childhood to higher education systems. Overall, the state’s grades show a disappointing lack of investment and progress in reforming systems to ensure every kid is safe, well educated, and healthy.

On January 1, my bill AB 1227 will become law. It will help protect children from sexual and labor exploitation by requiring school districts to teach about Human Trafficking in grades 7-12. This is a critical issue in Oakland and throughout the state. This East Bay Times story details how AB 1227 will help combat these horrible crimes being committed against our children.

"The San Francisco Bay Area is home to one of three “High Intensity Child Prostitution” zones designated by the FBI. The epicenter is a stretch of International Boulevard in Oakland known as “the track” — some three dozen blocks where skimpily clad minors approach potential customers in plain view. Some 100 children are sold for sex in the city on any given day, according to the West Coast Children’s clinic, which provides trauma services to victims. Minors are on average 12 to 14 when they are coerced into performing sex work."
