A Gathering of Black Professional Men in support of Urban PrepOn June 1st, COAL leadership, members, and partners, along with Urban Prep management and students, gathered for a planned press conference calling for the Governor and Mayor to #SAVEUP. The fight continues.

On June 1st, COAL leadership, members, and partners, along with Urban Prep management and students, gathered for a planned press conference calling for the Governor and Mayor to #SAVEUP. The fight continues.

Due to a combination of 1) work on additional June actions toward stopping the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) Board from shutting down Urban Prep Academies, and 2) HVAC work at Bourdeau-Griffin, the facility which hosts the Coalition Power Breakfast, COAL will forego its June Breakfast.

Please continue to look for COAL communications sharing information and commenting on our most intransigent issues, notice of upcoming Breakfasts, and importantly, we call on those who believe that our children deserve a quality education, to please take whatever action you can, including contacting your local and state elected representatives, the Mayor and Governor, to demonstrate your support for Urban Prep continuing as Urban Prep, an institution of learning that is providing a quality HS education and preparing its graduates for college and other post-secondary pursuits, as well as engendering a sense of self, self-esteem and pride in our history and people, in our boys and young men.

Please share with friends and associates.

COAL apologizes for any inconvenience this causes our membership and greater community-of-interest.

Respectfully,

COAL Board of Directors
