The Peralta Board of Trustees directed the Chancellor to stop all conversations with the A’s, effectively STOPPING the proposed stadium mega development from coming to Laney, Chinatown and Eastlake!
So, we’re turning our mobilization into a party! To thank the board for their decision and show of leadership in this moment, but also to be clear that any privatizing of public education and land will not be accepted be it a stadium or another private venture down the road.
Join us for a celebratory “we’re still watching” with food, study hall, thank you card signing and more. Join us in telling the Board to act in the best interests of Laney students and Oakland’s surrounding communities by voting NO to the A’s proposal.
WHEN: Tues, Dec 12, 7 pm (arrive by 6 PM to get a seat-Oct’s meeting was packed!)
WHERE: 333 E 8th Street (Board’s main office across from Laney athletic fields)

***Students now get speaking priority at the meeting after community outrage that A’s fans in support of the stadium got to speak first before any high school/Laney student at the Oct Board meeting.***
