Hi. I’m Amanda Chagoya, and I’m running for the board of education.

In 2020, when it became clear that the change that I wanted to see in the world wasn’t going to come from the national-level down, I decided to be the change, to start locally and push the change up.

As a mom, a businesswoman and a community volunteer, I know that it takes more than passion to make a difference. It takes coordination, communication, strategy and a healthy helping of listening. I look forward to helping Newark families, teachers and staff thrive.


I believe that every child deserves an equitable, high-quality education.

I believe in the power and importance of labor unions.

I believe that healthcare is a human right, not an employee privilege.

I believe that workers deserve to make a living wage, and support a $15/hour federal minimum wage.

I believe climate change is real, and it’s the responsibility of everyone to make change.

let’s turn belief into action!

I would be honored to have your support in the upcoming election! If you’re not registered to vote yet, please visit the Alameda County Registrar of Voters website. Register to Vote
