PPJPC Annual Meeting January 26
PPJPC members and friends alike are invited to our annual meeting, to be held
THIS SATURDAY, Jan. 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Grace & St. Stephens’ Episcopal Church, 601 N. Tejon. The potluck and member discussion will be held in the conference hall on the north side of the church. Feel free to bring your favorite dish to pass. If possible, please bring your own dishware to cut down on waste. We will present our budget for 2019, say goodbye to outgoing board members and elect new ones, and participate in a guided discussion. Come prepared to discuss how to "activate your activism.” . This event is FREE, but we are asking people to RSVP at our EventBrite site, which you can access HERE.
This Friday, January 25, PPJPC and Grace Be Unto You Church will officially launch the LEAD Academy at the church offices, 3195 Airport Road. Enrollment is open now, but will continue on an ongoing basis after the start date. LEAD Excellence Academy will help challenge the cradle-to-prison pipeline, a key mission for PPJPC in 2019. Our first students signed up last week. Excellence Academy programs have been launched nationwide to provide a mix of physical-facility-based education, as well as resources for home-schooled and online education programs. More information is available by contacting Victoria Stone at (719) 632-6189.
