The most recent efforts by The Cupertino Progressive—a three-person community advocacy team of which I was a part—were focused on a local election regarding funding for our public schools, many of which are threatened with closure. We interviewed about a dozen stakeholders, ranging in age from 6-75, about how school closure would affect them.
What resulted was a public awareness campaign that included explanatory videos and interviews from within the community.
Community participation continues to be critical in this project, which is why we invited local students to help illustrate our social media "posters."
