Dear Champions of Change,

Like Cesar Chavez said, "We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own."

I am excited to welcome you to our website as we continue contributing to the movement towards 100% graduation in Los Angeles. In Board District 2 our goal is to start every day with our sight on the graduation finish line because when our youth read, write, think, and believe, we interrupt poverty, we increase economic opportunities, and we strengthen our local communities.

Visit regularly for updates, opportunities for partnership, and resources to help L.A.'s children succeed.

We are committed to an L.A. Unified that puts Kids First by focusing on A-G for All, Health and Wellness initiatives that reduce barriers to learning, and innovation that increases achievement, independence, and accountability.

Let's continue to be bold, optimistic and aggressive by working together to increase student achievement and getting us closer to 100% graduation for all.

The Board District 2 team is here ready to support you, please don't hesitate to contact my office directly at (213) 241-6180.

In the spirit of hope,
