Education and Resources
Our vision for Black sanctuary goes beyond Oakland Unified School District and schools across the country. Black sanctuary centers Black leadership in the process of crafting the solutions. It recognizes the unique struggle Black folks experience in this country, and strives to ensure a system that is a sanctuary for all. We understand that fighting for and with Black students and families will impact the entire community. Creating Black Sanctuary requires being willing to engage in authentic struggle to reimagine the systems that no longer serve us. It is understanding that the fight is bigger than one individual or organization, and must be based on our lived experience as expertise. For us Black Sanctuary means Sanctuary for ALL.
