Comentario público para la reunión de la Junta del 29 de junio de 2020 sobre el “presupuesto 2020-21”
Hola mi nombre es ________. Yo soy un [estudiante, padre, miembro de la comunidad, parent,etc] del Distrito de las Preparatorias en Kern. Yo estoy urgiendo que los miembros de la mesa directiva adopten un presupuesto para el año 2020-21 que recorte los fondos del departamento de policía de las Preparatorias en Kern y inverta en los jóvenes. POLICÍAS NO PERTENECEN EN LAS ESCUELAS. Es tiempo de reimaginar la seguridad escolar, despenalizar estudiantes Afroamericanos y Latinos, y invertir aproximadamente $4 millones para:
Contratar consejeros, trabajadores sociales, psicólogos, médicos de salud mental y enfermeras adicionales.
Contratar maestros de varias etnicidades que reflejen la población estudiantil.
Implementar estudios étnicos.
Contratar practicantes de justicia restaurativa y eliminar a todos los policías de los modelos de justicia restaurativa e intervención y apoyo de comportamiento positivo. [agregar cualquier otra sugerencia para el presupuesto]
Por favor, ayúdenos a correr la voz y mandar esta información a otras personas.

In addition, Vecinos Unidos have assisted more than 300 families in completing the 2020 Census and have educated many others on the importance of getting every member of their families and communities counted.

The Census is HERE! Check your mail boxes for your invitation to participate in an important and heroic act of solidarity. Counting everyone in our community is urgent and extremely necessary. For every person not counted in the Census, we could lose $20,000 over the 10 years. Critical health services like responses to the Coronavirus, not to mention childcare, housing, education programs and political representation depend on Census funding.
We’ll all need to do our part to adapt and adjust accordingly as our community grapples with this unprecedented public health emergency. For the first time, the U.S. Census questionnaires will be available by phone or online. It has never been easier to respond on your own. Avoid having a Census enumerator visit your home by responding TODAY! Tell and remind your neighbors. We are all in this together. If your family and neighbors don’t participate, we all lose out.
By using the unique code, given in your invitation, you can fill out the 9-question survey.
You have the power to shape your community!
The 2020 Census will count everyone, including children, in the country by April 1st, your confidential response to the Census questionnaire will help ensure funding and fair representation. Reclaim your power!
