Storytelling: While every Oakland public school student has some shared experiences, they each have a unique education story to tell. Daisy Padilla is a fierce community advocate for Oakland’s kids and a product of the school system she works to transform. I spoke to Daisy about her story for GO Public Schools Oakland.
Editorial Creation and Project Management: Not In Our Town partnered with the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights to provide information, guides, and action ideas for communities and schools about how to stand up to hate, intolerance, and bullying.
As the Project and Editorial Manager, I led the creation, editing, and quality assurance on the fliers. This included writing and editing copy, sourcing photos, and managing the graphic designer on strict deadlines. I also managed the creation and design of the Stop Hate Action kit websites. View both fliers here. You can view the website here.
Data Visualization Report: GO Public Schools Oakland released a data report outlining how schools are serving low-income Black and Latino/a students. I created the website landing page, social media toolkit, partner outreach materials and more. These communications strategies generated over 1,300 downloads of the report and became a useful resource for parents in Oakland.
