    Dear Friends, Associates, and Fellow Concerned New Orleanians,

    I have been speaking with many of you individually, hearing about and sharing city-wide concerns about the schools planning process and demolitions. It is time to come together. Please join us Tuesday night to discuss urgent city-wide education and demolition issues.

    I will be sending out this invitation to different people and hope it will be forwarded by you as appropriate, so we hopefully will have in our attendance stakeholders such as neighborhood stewards, families, educators, bloggers, and architectural/ historic preservationists. I am planning for a one-and-a-half hour meeting, with the intrductions starting at 7 and information sharing/ specific issues conversations starting at 7:45, depending on attendance but not exceeding those times. The meeting will end at 8:30 with informal conversation time afterwards until the coffeeshop downstairs closes!

    The location is upstairs at Fairgrinds Coffeehouse, 3133 Ponce de Leon, behind the old Whole Foods on Esplanade. Please contact me for further information or to volunteer to assist in organizing. 🙂

    Thank you, and I hope to see you Tuesday night!

    In prayer,
    Amy Lafont
