MEET JOHN

A lifelong educator, John B. King Jr. knows firsthand the power of public education and the important role educators play in creating a more just and prosperous future. John’s own life was saved by public school educators after both of his parents passed away by the time he was twelve. Like many kids who suffer trauma, John struggled as a teenager and got into so much trouble that he was actually kicked out of high school. It was public school educators that saved his life, gave him a second chance, and inspired him to become an educator himself. John has spent his entire career fighting for a more just and equitable future, from working as an educator himself to serving as the first Afro-Latino Secretary of Education under President Obama.

The Black Agenda is not just a single policy for me, it's a lens that I view every part of my platform through. Thank you to @TezlynFigaro and @OurBlackParty for hosting such a vital discussion last night. https://t.co/k2xbQAXMvC

Poverty is an all-encompassing injustice that demands all-encompassing solutions. From establishing eviction protections, to passing paid family leave, to instituting free community college, I’ll attack the problem of poverty from every angle as governor.
