Rev. Jesse Jackson Addresses Youth Violence and Equity at Street Academy - December 2014

Updated: Apr 22

In December 2014, Street Academy had the honor of hosting Reverend Jesse Jackson. Standing at the main entrance of our school, Rev. Jackson was interviewed by local TV, addressing critical issues of violence against students of color and discussing pathways toward change, equity, and success for all youth. This powerful moment, captured & shared by OUSDNews on YouTube, underscores our ongoing commitment to social justice and educational equity.

We encourage our school community & visitors to watch this poignant interview & engage in reflection & dialogue. How can we, inspired by Rev. Jackson’s words, continue to work towards a more just & equitable society for our students and all youth?
