A group of local pastors and community leaders gathered on West Broad Street early Sunday morning outside the city school district central office building as part of activities for Children’s Interfaith Weekend.
That’s actually a national effort going on in October to bring attention to the needs of children, which is also known as ‘Children’s Sabbath,’ focusing of the needs of children.
Locally, the emphasis this year was on the need to reduce school suspensions, something that the Children’s Agenda has been pushing for.
The Children’s Agenda advocates for effective policies and drives evidenced-based solutions for the health, education and success of children. We are especially committed to children who are vulnerable because of poverty, racism, health inequities and trauma.
