Join BOCA in support of the REALM charter school at an education rally outside of the Berkeley Unified School District office.


What: Education Rally and School Board Meeting

Where: 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way

When: Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at 6pm

Why: To show support for the approval of the REALM charter school and educational opportunities for our Berkeley youth



We invite you to continue your support and solidarity with BOCA in front of the school board immediately following the rally, at 7pm. Your presence at this meeting is important because the school board will formally be presented with our petition for the charter school. The vision for the charter school is to provide our students with innovative, culturally relevant and rigorous educational programs.  The goals are to increase graduation rates, test scores, and admissions to college, while empowering youth with 21st century technology skills and activism in social justice issues. Our students need this opportunity; our students need YOU!

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
