 March And Mobilization This Tuesday Will Defend High-Quality, Diverse Education

NC Justice Center issues statement of support, says march will “send an important message”

RALEIGH (July 16) – To defend high-quality, diverse schools in Wake County, pro-education groups will march this Tuesday.

This morning, the North Carolina Justice Center issued a statement in strong support of the march and the Wake County school diversity policy the action seeks to preserve.

“Wake County’s nationally recognized diversity policy is an important part of creating the excellent schools our children deserve,” said Christopher Hill, director of the NC Justice Center's education project.

Supporters of the diversity policy will gather July 20 at 10 a.m. They will march from the Raleigh Convention Center to the State Capitol. Marchers will represent more than two dozen concerned groups of local parents, state religious organizations and nonprofits including the NC NAACP.

“This march will send an important message that our community values and demands high-quality, diverse education,” said Hill.
