I am ready to lead our district into a new era that puts social and racial justice into action. If we do nothing, everything will stay the same.
As a community, our children can’t afford that.
Racial Justice and Equity Advocate
for MDUSD School Board
My name is Keisha Nzewi and I am a candidate for Mount Diablo Unified School District, Area 3. I am the Public Policy Director for the California Child Care Resource & Referral Network, the parent of a Valley View Middle School 7th grader, and a member of Racial Equity for MDUSD.
Like all parents, I want the best schools possible for my child. In fact, I want what’s best for all children. Given the new challenges COVID-19 brings, and the old challenges of racism, we need progressive thinkers on the School Board. We need decision makers who are not confined in their thinking by the way things are or have always been, but are willing to identify the things that don’t work in our school district, and have the courage to rebuild it the right way.
My education prepared me for reimagining our educational systems. I have a BA Degree from UC Berkeley and a Masters of Public Health from SF State University. Every day I think strategically about how to provide quality child care in our state at my job with the California Child Care Resource & Referral Network.
I am ready to lead our district into a new era that puts social and racial justice into action through policies, curriculum, and training. I will build community within the district so students, families, teachers, and administrators feel like their voices are not only heard, but valued and amplified. I will foster communication so that the district becomes better listeners.
If we do nothing, everything will stay the same. As a community, our children can’t afford that. We need to seize this moment to make real change.
