Latest Updates from San José

Parents, are you interested in learning more about how to advocate for educational equity in the upcoming elections?  

We have put together a local, education voter guide with information about how to vote, two statewide propositions that Innovate endorses, and candidates running for the San José Unified School District Board of Education. 

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Innovate Public Schools cannot and does not endorse candidates. Every candidate running for office makes decisions that affect our children and communities. We hope our guide will help you get to know the people running for office in San José.

If you would like to learn more about how to engage in local advocacy efforts, please contact Sofia Lozano-Pallares at

Thank you for engaging in our democracy by voting, encouraging your friends and family to vote, and learning more about local candidates and ballot initiatives!
