Posted November 15, 2016

— The Association of Mexicans in North Carolina (AMEXCAN) and the Eastern North Carolina Latin American Coalition Inc. (ENCLACO) is hosting an emergency community forum on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church on 131 Oakmont Dr. in Greenville to address and discuss recent verbal, physical and social attacks on children in eastern North Carolina school systems.

This event is for administrators, teachers, parents, board members and any individuals who may have something at stake and wishes to not only discuss the current election situation but also voice their concerns, ask questions and create collaborative solutions to properly address previous events, develop an appropriate system to address future acts, and prevent further occurrences.

Many families have reached out to AMEXCAN and have reported racial harassment on school children since the election and expressed concern for their children’s safety and their well being while attending school daily.

This event will give the community an opportunity to cohesively work together in implementing a plan to ensure that the children will have the best environment to further their education and thrive as the future of this country.
