Vote for Alfred 'Shivy' Brooks on December 5

Equity in Education’s endorsed candidate Alfred ‘Shivy’ Brooks, Seat 7, faces a run-off on December 5th against incumbent Tamara Jones. With such a close margin, the people of Atlanta are identifying that there is a need for change. If elected, Brooks will make history by becoming the first active teacher to serve on the Atlanta Public Schools Board of Education.

Brooks has taught in the classroom for over 10 years, in addition to navigating APS as a father to two students. We believe having an active educator on the board can help create more effective policy by taking educators’ daily experiences into account.
