I am running the Oakland Marathon on March 24th, 2019 in support of Plazas Community Bilingual Education, Inc. which provides scholarships to low-income families for their kids to attend high-quality Spanish-language preschools.
Early education is currently a privilege that should be a given right for all. Research shows us that access to high-quality early education is extremely important as 90% of brain development happens within the first 5 years of life! Also, being supported in environments that affirm and your culture is invaluable.
Access to quality preschool can have a positive impact that will last a lifetime for these little ones. Please join me in supporting the children and families that make and made Oakland, our home, what it is today.
