Education -


Berkeley has some of the best public schools in the state. At all levels, however, a significant achievement gap remains for our African-American and Latino students and those from low-income families.

Mayor Arreguin is working to close these educational disparities by prioritizing the City’s role in the Vision 2020 Initiative, whose aim is to create equitable outcomes.

The Mayor also hopes to realize a universal early childhood education program, increase youth access to city recreation opportunities, and work with BUSD to expand classroom facilities. As one of the two councilmembers on the 2x2 Committee, the Mayor collaborates with BUSD on issues ranging from parking, to homelessness, to establishing Berkeley as a Sanctuary City.



Public Health - Mayor Arreguin knows access to healthcare is key to community well-being, and is working to identify and address disparities. [more...]

Divestment - We believe in leading by example and are guided by a moral standard of social justice.
The City of Berkeley was one of the first American cities to divest from apartheid South Africa in the 1980s. Nearly four decades later, Mayor Arreguin is committed to keeping Berkeley a beacon of political action in a time of national darkness.
