The Black Parallel School Board will hold a candidates forum for the upcoming Sacramento City Unified School District Board election on Saturday, October 6th from 11:30 to 1:30 PM at the Fruitridge Community Collaborative in Room 5.

The main focus of this event is to let the public understand who their candidates for this election are. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, hear what the candidates have to say and learn what the future of their school district could hold.

Confirmed candidates who will be attending are Lisa Murawski and Anna Molander, running in Area I, Ellen Cochrane, Cecile L. Nunley and Leticia Garcia who are running in Area II, and Darrell Woo and Jody S. Johnson from Area VI.

“As a young person, I try and find every possible way to get involved,” said Emelia-Rose Engel, an intern with candidate Lisa Murawski. “I know how important and vital this race is to me and so many other youths. This race affects the school system and with that, thousands and thousands of students, which means getting involved and letting our voices be heard is so powerful and meaningful.”
