I'm not a politician, I'm a Freirean activist whose entire life revolves around the struggle. Therefore, the active struggles for social justice in our communities are one in the same as my campaign. I don't see them as separate, and my campaign takes second place to the struggles on the ground. As I said to a close fellow activist the other day, "It doesn't make sense for me to avoid struggles to save public education during my LAUSD run, because there might not be a district left by the time the Anschutz Four and Broad's Chosen One are through." While electing a board majority that values public education is crucial, it doesn't alleviate the need for the struggle in our communities.
