Nearly four years ago, the founding chapter of the Black Lives Matter activist network allied with the main teachers union in Los Angeles. They started organizing students to create a foundation that would transform the nation’s second-largest public school system from within.

The two groups became even more intertwined earlier this year when members of United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) overwhelmingly elected a Black Lives Matter activist as its new president.
