As reported by Betty Pleasant in this week's The Wave, this Saturday, August 9th the LAUSD and United Teachers Los Angeles will lead a protest that we're supporting opposing the unsafe street-level railroad crossings near our community's schools.

The goal is to send a message to the MTA and Public Utilities Commission that we do not support the MTA's proposed Expo Line Phase 1 design that forces no child west of La Cienega to walk across the tracks, but forces thousands of South LA children to walk across the tracks every day for the next 100 years (link and pdf). Show up to stand up for our community and children's safety!

The schedule for Saturday's activities is as follows:

9 am - 10 am:
Assembly at Foshay Learning Center (Western/Exposition)

10 am - 11 am:
Solemn walk, bike, drive, jog to from Foshay to Dorsey HS (Farmdale/Exposition)

11 am - Noon:
Assembly at Dorsey High School to plan next steps
