The Coalition of Concerned Citizens for African American Children is standing with those who will be participating in Monday night's candlelight vigil in support of Wake County's diversity policy.
In a press release late Thursday, the group announced it will hold a press conference at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Martin St. Baptist Church, the same location for the candlelight vigil that will take place at 7 p.m.
"Members from the faith based community, sororities, fraternities, community organizations, citizens, and all who support equal educational opportunities and socioeconomic diversity will join us as we speak as one voice and as a united community," according to the press release. "We must let the BOE know that we as a community, believe that all children benefit when they attend schools that are racially and economically diverse."
(As you can guess, the pace and number of posts will escalate rapidly between now and Tuesday night.)
