      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

      Williamsburg and Greenpoint Newcomers Join Latino Community Against Charter Schools

      BROOKLYN, New York (February 12, 2012) - At 6pm on February 16, 2012, in what will be an unprecedented display of solidarity, the Williamsburg Greenpoint Parents for Our Public Schools will join the Southside Community Schools Coalition to protest the placement of a Success Academy Charter School in JHS50.

      Both groups are expected to attend the Success Academy Williamsburg Co-Location Hearing which starts at 6pm JHS 50, where both groups will join together in protest to a decision in favor of Success Academy that they believe has already been pre-determined by the DoE.

      This is the first time that gentrified Williamsburg and the Latino community of Williamsburg will have come together in such numbers on any issue.  Both groups want the Department of Education to hear their voice as one and recognize that District 14, in all its diversity, does not want Success Academy Williamsburg.

      Both groups demand that the Department of Education listen to the impacted Williamsburg community and reject the proposed co-location of Success Academy Charter School into JHS50. 

      The March will gather on February 16th at 4pm at El Puente on South 4th Street and Roebling, and will end at 5:30pm at JHS50 (183 South 3rd Street) to attend the Public Hearing for the Co-Location of Success Academy.
