 ISAIAH Education Equity Leaders Meeting - Monday, May 25, 2015 @ 9am


 ISAIAH Education Equity leaders -

Newly elected, at-large school board member Don Samuels has agreed to meet with ISAIAH members from Minneapolis at 9 am on Monday, May 25 (Memorial Day).  Location not yet determined, but likely a coffee shop in Minneapolis.  The St Joan of Arc team initiated this relationship prior to the 2014 elections and has "adopted" Mr Samuels as part of our city-wide Education Equity strategy.  We're very interested in understanding how the school board is addressing the racial opportunity gaps both in terms of current policy and in the process of replacing Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson. 
St Joan of Arc ISAIAH team - We are hosting this meeting and maintaining this relationship, so I would ask that we have at the very least two other SJA folks in attendance.

Other ISAIAH Education Equity leaders - You are also very welcome to join us, but there is no obligation to do so.  Strategically, it would be particularly powerful to have leaders from African American congregations at the meeting, since he has only met the St Joan of Arc ISAIAH team so far.
Please let me know if you can attend ASAP, as the group size will determine the venue chosen.

Moving forward, there should be more meetings of this nature set up, so there will be more opportunities to support each other in this endeavor. 
God bless, 
Greg
