Madhavi Sunder filed candidacy papers for the Davis school board on Tuesday. Sunder is seeking one of the four-year school board seats in the Nov. 4 election.

Sunder has been a professor at the UC Davis School of Law for 15 years. She also has been a visiting professor at the Yale Law School, the University of Chicago Law School and Cornell Law School.

Sunder recently participated in the Davis school district’s strategic planning process as a member of the Academic, Social and Personal Goals Action Team. She also was a leader in the 2005 campaign to name a new elementary school in the Mace Ranch neighborhood after Fred Korematsu, who waged a decades-long and ultimately successful challenge to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

Sunder and her husband, who is also a UC Davis law professor, have two children who are elementary school students in Davis.

“I’m excited and proud to declare my candidacy for Davis school board, which I believe is the most important seat in our town, because we ensure opportunities for the 8,500 children in our district,” Sunder said. “I’m proud to do so with members from our campaign team — we are parents and children doing their part to keep our schools strong.”

Sunder has been endorsed by the Davis Teachers Association, Sen. Lois Wolk, Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, Yolo County Supervisor Jim Provenza, Davis Mayor Dan Wolk, Davis City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson, County Clerk-Recorder Freddie Oakley and former state Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin.

She also has received support from several colleagues at UC Davis, including former College of Engineering Dean Enrique Lavernia, law school Dean Kevin Johnson, social sciences Dean Ron Mangun, 2014 UC Davis Teacher of the Year Suad Joseph and former California Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso.

The Sunder campaign’s website is www.SunderForSchools.org and the Facebook page is www.facebook.com/SunderForSchoolBoard.
