The North Carolina Conference Board of Church and Society and Western North Carolina Conference are working jointly on UMAPS – United Methodists Advocating for Public Schools. This joint endeavor is in response to a resolution approved at the 2017 Annual Conference. The North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE) is organizing a Day of Action May 1, 2019 in Raleigh and would like to see as many United Methodists as possible join to let the legislature know that United Methodist churches support public education. The group will gather at the Edenton Street UMC parking lot at the corner of Edenton Street and McDowell. Please note you can NOT park there so participants will need to make alternate parking arrangements. The group will gather between 9:00 and 9:30 am, and marchers will then proceed to the NCAE bulding so they can be there by 10:00 am. It is nearly an 8 block walk so wear comfortable shoes. Below you will find file links that can be used to print 11×17 placards to carry.
