Alpha’s Parent Leader Committee

Our parents held a candidate forum to inform the community and to have their voice heard. Parents invited local candidates and community leaders to join an online community forum to talk to community members about topics important to their lives such as affordable housing, education, and immigration, among other topics. Parent leaders were very effective at facilitating the forum, sharing their stories, and asking questions. After the forum, our parents shared that they felt empowered because they realized that they have the power to talk to community leaders about topics that are important to them while at the same time informing the community.

Our goal is that through these leadership experiences, our parents will further grow their confidence and skills to continue advocating for the needs of their families and their communities.

Alpha’s Parent Leader Committee is a group of parents from Alpha Public Schools who united to advocate for a better future for our children. They represent nearly 1800 students and their families from 4 schools in East San Jose, 3 of which are located in District 7. We believe all children have the right to an excellent education and community resources that support them in securing a successful future. The Parent Leader Committee goal is to be a strong voice advocating for the resources and opportunities that improve our schools and better our community.
