"I know Fatima to be an extraordinary mother and advocate for children and education. I know she will work hard to make meaningful and logical improvements for education. She is not afraid to challenge the status quo for the benefit of all and she will fight for honesty and transparency in how money is spent on education. If you want meaningful change to occur and honest politics, Fatima is the best and your only choice."
           – Dr. Crystal Simmons, School Psychologist & Lecturer

"I have known and experienced Fatima Alleyne's passionate commitment to and investment in education for many years. At UC Berkeley, Fatima was indefatigable in expanding the horizons of pre-college students, by introducing' them to the faculty, students, and opportunities available at Cal. I also experienced personally Fatima's commitment to the professional development of STEM teachers, when collaborating on a grant proposal bringing university resources to the schools. Fatima is equally committed to clear-eyed  assessment of learning outcomes and evaluation of school programs.
Dr. Alleyne will bring both energy and wisdom to the School Board. I heartily endorse her.

"We have had many opportunities to listen to Fatima share her positions on a variety of issues. We have observed her energy, determination, and commitment to improve policies relevant to African American children in West Contra Costa School District and the greater Bay Area. Fatima's leadership and research skills will benefit all children and their families who live and attend schools in West Contra Costa.  It is with much pleasure that The BlackBoard endorses Fatima, as a candidate for County Board of Education."
           – Gloria Scoggins, President of The BlackBoard of WCC

​​"To be of good service to our community, our servants must begin by operating from a place of integrity and with an intention to serve all students. Fatima Alleyne holds both of these qualities. That is why I endorse her."        – Mina Wilson, Community Advocate

"The role of members of the County Board of Education is very important in terms of oversight of Districts, support services to District and appeal process for parents and students. It is time to have a representative that can relate and support all segments of the West County communities, that is why I am supporting Dr. Fatima Alleyne, a strong, furious advocate for education excellence".
