Max Orozco is a seasoned and passionate parent organizer from our ally organization, Parent Voices Oakland. He’s also a working-class parent of children attending OUSD public schools. Orozco has shown his commitment to his children’s education by taking part in actions to prevent school closures and joining other parents at school meetings to protest and talk to school board directors about the importance of quality education for all. He promises to work with parents, students, and teachers to bring back programs that aid students in succeeding, including: computer, art, and music classes, bilingual programs for all students, and trade programs for high school students. As a parent of OUSD students, he is passionate about restorative justice and finding alternate solutions to violence instead of sending kids down the school-to-prison pipeline.
