Dear LAUSD Board President Zimmer and Superintendent King:
The Philadelphia Student Union is a youth-led, civil and human rights organization working to stop the
school to prison pipeline and the mass incarceration of Black and Latino students and communities in
Philadelphia, PA. We are also allies of the Labor/Community Strategy Center and it’s Fight for the Soul of
the Cities. We too are calling for President Obama to end the Department of Defense 1033 Program and
other programs militarizing our schools and communities.
