SCSJ and community partners celebrate a win for students and parents of Ashley Elementary after a panel of the Winston-Salem City Council voted unanimously to recommend the sale of city-owned property that will serve as the site of a new school to replace Ashley Elementary. The recommendation is slated to go before the full City Council for consideration on October 21.
This is a hard-earned step in the right direction, as the current Ashley Elementary has been the focus of intense concerns regarding environmental safety, segregation, and educational equity. We thank our community partners in the Action4Ashley Coalition for the opportunity to assist in strategizing around this land deal!

We encourage all those interested in learning more about the organizing around these issues in Winston-Salem / Forsyth County to visit the Action4Equity website.
