Supporters of the old diversity policy are heeding Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker's call for input on the decisions being made by the Wake County school board.
The YWCA of the Greater Triangle is hastily spreading the word about a forum at 7 p.m. tonight at Revelation Baptist Church, 805 E. Davie St. in Southeast Raleigh. The e-mail message says they're responding to Meeker's call for "feedback from community leaders, business people and legal advocates about recent decisions and plans made by the Wake County Board of Education."
Participants will meet in small group and large group discussions developing what will be discussed in a meeting later with Meeker.
"What should be our strategy for the meeting with the Mayor and is there a unified message we want to convey?" according to the flier for the event.
This is the kind of feedback that, once the new community zones are drafted, that could result in a lawsuit being filed against the school system. Officially, any lawsuit would be by individuals and/or community groups and not by the city.
