WHAT WE KNOW:
Frustrated parents of the Los Angeles Unified School District organized a Zoom blackout on Monday aimed at pressuring schools to reopen as the district and teachers union battle out demands amid the coronavirus pandemic.
• Cynthia Rojas, who helped organize the blackout said “We don’t have a seat at the table when it comes to the negotiations between LAUSD and [United Teachers Los Angeles], and so we’ve been trying the standard calling and voicemails and emails, but it’s not working,” Rojas said. “And so I’m part of a group of just parents who are just really frustrated.”

This morning I’m joining LAUSD parents for this “Zoom blackout” to advocate for the reopening of schools. Great real world civics lesson for kids – the power of lifting our collective voices. #openschools #California pic.twitter.com/UZoD8yKkKh
