LAUSD District 2 is still held by one of the staunchest enemies of public education this side of Betsy DeVos.
It’s likely the only way to stop Monica Gülenist Garcia is to run enough candidates to divide up her district.
There is an Asian Pacific American (APA) candidate who taught school alongside one of my law school classmates. She worked with several prominent UTLA activists back in the day, and says she was one of the founding members of Coalition for Educational Justice (CEJ). She went on to become an attorney representing students with disabilities. For the most part, she holds the same values as CEJ and similar minded groups like SLASD.
She needs more help with the signature gathering to get on the ballot. My wife and I gave her several volunteer hours this week, and we made a campaign contribution. We believe she would be an excellent candidate for this district.
Please consider volunteering to help her with the signature gathering process.
