Wrap up from East Atlanta Unity Event, Sunday 2/12/2017
A big thanks to everybody that came out to the Unity Gathering Sunday presented by Councilmember Natalyn Archibong and EACA. With an estimated 200 people on hand listening to a range of speakers the hope was for a sincere approach to show our neighborhood as a place of acceptance, tolerance and support for all our residents and guests to our community.
Speakers included Archibong herself, a unity poem recited by two of our local BPA students, EACA President Lewis Cartee, City of Atlanta Council President Caesar Mitchell, Nate Minor from Screenfixing.com as a voice for the business district, an education trio consisting of current Burgess-Peterson Academy Elementary School principal, David White, current D.H. Stanton principal and former Burgess-Peterson principal Robin Christian (Robbins), and Matt Westmoreland, Atlanta Board of Education Representative for District 3 as well as Imam Plemon T. El-Amin, Imam Emeritus of the Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam.
Thanks is also extended to both Screenfixing.com for our sound and Joe's Coffee for the contribution of beverages.
