Call for Civic Engagement for Oscar Lopez Rivera, Alternative School Leader and founder of Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School

Letter from Danette Sokacich, Principal, Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School

There is an urgent call to action I am requesting.

The founder of Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School, Oscar Lopez Rivera, has served 35 years as a political prisoner for his commitment to a free and liberated Puerto Rico. Oscar Lopez Rivera was a fierce advocate of alternative education for disenfranchised youth in the city of Chicago, which allowed for school like ours to provide culturally relevant education, using critical pedagogy to incorporate the critical thinking of Black and Latino youth.

In these last critical days of the Obama administration, we are asking your campus to activate your students and community to sign this online petition to call the White House to release Oscar Lopez Rivera. The petition can be found at bit.ly/obama-free-oscar-now

Please click on this link to a list supporters for his release, which include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Senator Bernie Sanders, Congressman Luis Gutierrez, and YCCS Board Member Dr. Laura Ruth Johnson, to name a few.

Please encourage your students, staff and teachers to participate! We need 100,000 signatures before Dec. 10.

All the best in this time of solidarity,
Danette
