--No reopening until the scientific data supports it

--Police-free schools

--All schools must be supported to function as community schools with adequate numbers
of counselors and nurses and community/parent outreach workers

--Safe conditions including lower class sizes, PPE, cleaning, testing, and other key protocols

--Equitable access to online learning

--Support for our communities and families, including canceling rents and mortgages,
a moratorium on evictions/foreclosures, providing direct cash assistance to those
not able to work or who are unemployed, and other critical social needs

--Moratorium on new charter or voucher programs and standardized testing

--Massive infusion of federal money to support the reopening funded
by taxing billionaires and Wall Street

--Equitable access to online learning

In this movement moment, our organizations have come together to unite students, educators, parents and community to advance a racial justice agenda in public education, in particular by organizing for police-free schools. We’re working to galvanize a strong and growing student/educator/parent/community voice; a voice that says the government must go much further to provide the resources to ensure a safe and equitable school reopening and must provide for our communities and working families through transformational Common Good demands.
