BREAKFAST WITH NICOLE BAKER FULGHAM – $20
Faithful Advocacy for Education Equality
October 18, 2019  |  8:00am – 9:30am
Bethel Christian Fellowship

 

In some public schools we see a future full of promise. But for students growing up in poverty, public education looks a whole lot different. Education inequality keeps students from achieving their dreams and fulfilling their God given potential.

There are more than 300,000 places of worship across America compared with roughly 50,000 high-poverty public schools, struggling to meet student needs.  The church has a responsibility to use our positions of privilege and authority to advocate for public policy changes that will make a real difference for our nation’s students.

Nicole Baker Fulgham is the founder and President of the Expectations Project. The Expectations Project empowers people of faith to shine a light on education inequality through prayer, compassionate service and faithful advocacy.

Join us for breakfast with Nicole to look at the history of education inequality and a Biblical model of advocacy that can lead to change.
