Rallying the forces!

Our first meeting was held on the Eastbank and Westbank at Mt. Hermon and Providence Churches in Avondale and River Ridge respectively. Turn out was low but we managed to engage a the small group of parents who see the need to press Gideon Carter for dialogue on the subject of school attendance, districts, and adequate school preparation. We received some local news attention which was published by WDSU.

We have also gained the attention of the Jeremiah Group. This is an organization of religious institutions with enough support and influence to change political policies and protect the disenfranchised from being overlooked and abused.

Today at 7 pm there will be an organizational meeting of the Jeremiah Group at the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church at 1419 4th Street in Westwego. Please come by, bring your neighbors and friends and join in the effort to regain your power within your community.
