A rally to save Trinity Elementary from closing is expected to attract members of the community, students, parents and educators at the 117-year-old school Friday at 2 p.m.
Plans are to close the school and turn it into a corporate charter. Rally organizers say they want to put pressure on Los Angeles Unified School District Local District Superintendent Frances Baez to halt the closure of Trinity Elementary because it would destabilize students and families trying to recover emotionally and financially from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trinity Elementary has a 99% student of color population, according to a release from members from Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment-Los Angeles Education Chapter.
The alliance members are asking school board members and Superintendent Megan Reilly to assist in the effort to keep the school open.
The rally, march and a news conference will be at Trinity Elementary, 3736 Trinity St. in Los Angeles.
