Nicole Baker Fulgham Event

On March 25th, 41 attendees who represented over 27 churches and organizations gathered at Bethel AME Church for a church-school partnership event, featuring Nicole Baker Fulgham from The Expectations Project. The event was co-sponsored by Greater Things for Greater Boston (an urban-suburban network of churches), Emmanuel Gospel Center, All Our Children, the Black Ministerial Alliance, Bethel AME Church, and the Boston Public Schools’ Office of Engagement.

The event provided churches that already had school partnerships and churches that were exploring school partnerships an opportunity to network and learn from each other. Nicole shared about the work of The Expectations Project as well as churches in Indianapolis and Washington, D.C. She shared about the various ways that churches can engage in Compassionate Service and Faithful Advocacy, but challenged the churches to consider deepening their engagement especially in advocating for quality education for ALL CHILDREN.
