"For the Students" is a multi-generational committee.  It is composed of teachers, parents, students and professionals that believe in the students and their actions.  Some of the Committee members include 1968 Walk Out Leaders: Bobby Verdugo, Paula Crisostomo, Mita Cuaron, and Yoli Rios, along with other Commitee members.

We support the students in their efforts to stand up for their rights and those of their family, friends and community!

We also believe in working with multi-ethnic cross cultural  groups that believe "education is a right not a privilege".

IMPORTANT STUDENTS...
STOP AND READ THIS !!
INFO FROM ...HTP://WWW.SCHOOLWALKOUTS.INFO
 
The new materials listed below have now been posted on www.schoolwalkouts.info. Many students have been wrongfully disciplined by their schools. Accordingly, the School Discipline Appeal Packet materials below are provided by Public Counsel - LA, the NLG-LA, CADRE, APALC, MALDEF & CARECEN. It is important that the discipline appeal be attempted so as to clear students' records at the administrative level, if possible. If school districts will not honor administrative appeals, the fact that the appeal was attempted is an important part of the foundation for legal action, if necessary.
 
Also, many students have been given truancy citations by police officers AND HAVE JUVENILE COURT DATES COMING UP SOON! Accordingly, the Los Angeles Juvenile Court Information materials are provided to briefly inform parents, students and teachers about how the system works and what to expect, generally. Many students should not have received truancy citations/tickets. Thus, a Motion/Petition to Dismiss a truancy ticket, based upon what have been fairly common factual circumstances, has been included. It has been included primarily for ADVOCATES, but also for TEACHERS and PARENTS -- it is not recommended that STUDENTS use the Motion/Petition to Dismiss without assistance.
 
We will do our best to continue to update www.schoolwalkouts.info with useful materials and notices about trainings. IF YOU KNOW PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER WITH APPEALS AND FIGHTING CITATIONS, BUT HAVE NOT SIGNED UP ON THE WEBSITE, PLEASE ASK THEM TO DO SO IMMEDIATELY -- THE STUDENTS NEED MORE ASSISTANCE!!!
 
Kindest regards,

VIVA ANTHONY SOLTERO !!!
Eighth grader Anthony Soltero shot himself through the head on Thursday, March 30, after the assistant principal at De Anza Middle School told him that he was going to prison for three years because of his involvement as an organizer of the April 28 school walk-outs to protest the anti-immigrant legislation in Washington.  The vice principal also forbade Anthony from attending graduation activities and threatened to fine his mother for Anthony’s truancy and participation in the student protests.

 

               “Anthony was learning about the importance of civic duties and rights in his eighth grade class.  Ironically, he died because the vice principal at his school threatened him for speaking out and exercising those rights,” Ms. Corales said today.  “I want to speak out to other parents, whose children are attending the continuing protests this week.  We have to let the schools know that they can’t punish our children for exercising their rights.”

 

               Anthony’s death is likely the first fatality arising from the protests against the immigration legislation being considered in Washington, D.C.  Anthony, who was a very good student at De Anza Middle School in the Ontario-Montclair School District, believed in justice and was passionate about the immigration issue.  He is survived by his mother, Louise Corales, his father, a younger sister, and a baby brother.
