Striking Oakland Teachers' Fund

$20,675 of $27,500 goal

Raised by 303 people in 19 days
Created January 27, 2019
Two years of fruitless negotiations have brought Oakland teachers to a boiling point. We're willing to sacrifice our pay during a strike to win the schools our students deserve!

We lost 571 teachers last year.  Students are suffering when 20, 30 and even 40 percent of their school's teachers leave each year. We're bargaining to end the Teacher Retention Crisis: smaller class sizes, more student supports and a living wage.

Between the lowest teacher salaries in the Bay Area and the high cost of living in Oakland, many of us live paycheck-to-paycheck. Your contributions will go to our Member Assistance Fund which will prioritize small grants to the most financially precarious teachers during a strike.

(Teachers are currently voting to authorize a strike, if necessary.)

This is the official GoFundMe for the Membership Assistance Fund, sponsored by the Oakland Education Association. All proceeds will be deposited into the Membership Assistance Fund savings account and then disbursed to Oakland teachers by an appointed committee (per our bylaws) in the form of needs-based grants, in the event of a strike.

We are overwhelmed by the support from across the United States. Thank you!

On Friday, February 15 the advisory factfinding report will be released to us. There will be a statewide #REDFORED action that day in solidarity with Oakland teachers.
