Every Child NC is one of C4C’s primary partners in our mission to advocate for public school children and educators in North Carolina. This edition of their most recent online newsletter is full of opportunities for clergy and laity across our conference to learn more – and do more – about the challenges that our public schools and public school children face. I would particularly direct your attention to the following parts of this newsletter:
- The recording of the February 3, 2022 webinar “Leandro Case Updates: Q&A and the latest on Leandro v. State of North Carolina”
- The recording of the February 23, 2022 webinar “Unpack The Plan for Black Students and Families”
- “Mission Amplify”, a letter writing campaign to NC legislators, supporting the Leandro Plan, organized by our partner in public school advocacy, Pastors for NC Children
- “Our Kids Can’t Wait Campaign” hosted by the NC Association of Educators (NCAE), focused on the efficient and effective use of federal COVID-19 relief funds in local school districts
I hope you will find this as valuable as I have in our shared mission of “Helping Children Affected By Poverty – Supporting NC Public Schools.”
