Sacramento Families Organize for School Safety

After a parent at Golden Valley Charter School was nearly hit by a passing car in the crosswalk just outside the school, other parents banded together to fix the situation. They wanted speed bumps or safety tables installed, but county officials told them they first needed to prove there was community support for the idea. Over a two-week span, the parents, working with CCSA parent organizer Joanna Ahola, canvassed the entire neighborhood and gathered more than enough signatures to persuade officials. A few weeks ago, the safety tables were finally installed outside the school. Congratulations, families!
