The African American Male Achievement Group (AMA), a community based organization here in Savannah, continues to press the issue of the disproportionate incidences of out of school suspensions for African American Males in the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools.
Since their report was first released in April 2008, AMA has continued to update the suspension data and has worked diligently to raise the level of community awareness.
In keeping with that goal, AMA, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Educational Fund (New York) and a host of local supporters will present a “Know Your Rights” forum that will address suspensions, juvenile justice issues, and key legislative initiatives that impact education. The forum will be held on Feb. 27th from 8:30 am until Noon at the EOA Building at 618 W. Anderson Street (between MLK Blvd. and Ogeechee Rd.)
The forum is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend so that we can get an accurate count for light refreshments. Look forward to seeing you at this important event.
