The Urban Assembly
August 16, 2017
Dear Urban Assembly family and friends, The horrors perpetrated by white supremacists in Charlottesville this weekend have shaken even the most hopeful of us to our core. It is against this backdrop that nearly 1,000 young, strong students of color will be stepping from Urban Assembly high schools onto college campuses this fall. They need our collective commitment to ensuring that they will be safe, that their voices will be heard, and that they will have the opportunity to thrive and lead. Our country needs their strength and leadership. Our work as educators has enormous power to advance justice and equity.
