Members of the Socialist Party Ventura County Local attended a Ventura Unified School District Board meeting in response to a photoshopped picture of a Buena Park High school student lynching two African-American men. Many organizations in the area attended as a coalition addressing the need for ethnic studies as a high school graduation requirement and a system of restorative justice in the school system. Hearing their statements along with testimonies from the student who turned in the picture to the administration and the backlash she faced from other students along with administrators was incredibly moving.
