JJSE senior Nikki Whittaker was chosen by SFUSD as one of its six “outstanding graduates” for the Class of 2017. Here is her profile:

Nikki Whittaker

My family was displaced from their home in the Mission. While we found programs that provided assistance, I wanted to bring my new neighbors into the conversation so I co-founded a program called ‘Transformative Technology’ to bring people from both sides of gentrification to find solutions together.

I am graduating from June Jordan School for Equity and headed to UCLA. I want to become a UN ambassador or immigration lawyer.

 

JJSE Students Spearhead Undocumented Students Resolution

 

JJSE student leaders celebrated at the SFUSD school board on Tuesday, May 23, as the board voted unanimously in favor of the resolution they had developed in support of undocumented students. The resolution established a new, stronger policy for all SFUSD schools, providing legal protections, social-emotional support, and college and career access for undocumented and mixed-status students. This is one of the strongest policies in the nation, and perhaps the only one which was developed by and for undocumented students and peers. JJSE students led the effort, along with students from many other high schools in SF. This was a historic moment, and it represents the kind of leadership we need from JJSE students!

JJSE Debate Team Competes in Chengdu, China

 

The award-winning JJSE debate team just returned from a week in Chengdu, China, where they competed in an international debate tournament. Teacher TR Amsler says, “What a privilege it was taking students to Chengdu China for a debate tournament. We created a debate clash between climate change and the power of young people to determine our future rather than a passive spectator role in the face of global markets. I couldn’t have been prouder. We made it back with a bigger conception of the world and new friends. We might have come back home, but these students aren’t the same ones who left.”
