31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Call to Action!

2a
ISAIAH MPS Education Equity Team


Please find attached the minutes from our last ISAIAH Education Equity team meeting.  Key decisions that were made:
a.      Meet with MPS School Board members before the start of the school year
b.      We will organize a prayer vigil at MPS headquarters at 2 pm on August 23 (Sunday before the start of school).  Targeted turnout of 150 people.
c.       We will organize a group of 50 people to attend the MPS Board Meeting on September 8 (first meeting of the new school year) to highlight suspensions and punitive disciplinary policies.
d.      Next meeting of MPS Education Equity team:  6:30 pm, Aug. 3, 2015 in the same location (Mayflower UCC)
The help of everyone at the meeting, everyone receiving this email, and others that we invite in will be needed to have a powerful event on August 23.  Sue Budd is leading the logistics and planning team, I am leading the messaging and outreach team, and we will definitely need help distributing fliers and making phone calls.  Please consider how you can use your time and talents and let us know.
God bless,
Greg King
