I am just starting to learn about the LAUSD system and, frankly, at times how horrific it is for the children it is supposed to support. Speak UP is trying to change that by educating parents, hearing their concerns and ultimately holding LAUSD accountable for its actions.

There is an election for the District 4 School Board seat happening  on March 7th.  Whoever is voted in NOW is who will still be there when MY kids are in school…. It is a 5 & 1/2 year term!!!

All four candidates running to represent LAUSD Board District 4 in the March 7 election will appear together for the first time at the Speak UP Candidate Forum in Venice on Jan. 9 from 6-8 p.m.


Candidates Gregory Martayan, Nick Melvoin, Allison Holdorff Polhill and Steve Zimmer will each give a brief introductory statement at the forum, followed by a question and answer session moderated by Speak UP Co-Founder Katie Braude.

Wine and politics ladies!

If you are a local friend with littles… I truly hope you can make it!  It’s a great opportunity to learn about the decision makers behind our kids’ education and show them we care.


Registration will open at 5:45 pm.

Hors D’oeuvres and wine will be served until the forum begins
promptly at 6:30.

There will also be a reception following the forum.

Those who want an invitation email info@speakupparents.org.
Be sure to RSVP.

For those who cannot attend the Candidate Forum in person, Speak UP will also stream the forum live on the Speak UP Facebook page!
