Dear East Point Family,
East Point Peace Academy has long recognized the impact of socio-economic injustice and the legacy of race, gender and class discrimination that has decimated our communities on a large scale. As Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation practitioners, we endeavor to move collaboratively in the direction of social justice while recognizing that there will be conflicting methods and differences of opinions on how we get there. And we know that the arc of the universe bends towards justice, therefore “every step taken towards justice is a step in the right direction.” Inasmuch as Kazu Haga has resigned from the Leadership Team to pursue his interests, we want to acknowledge his community work and collaborations in the development of East Point and its programs over the past 10 years.
Our Board members are contemplating the next steps to ensure this change results in the best path forward. The Board will engage an interim Leadership Team member to care for the organization during this time of transition. As an organization, East Point remains committed to continuing the work of institutionalizing and internationalizing the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through offering Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation trainings and related programming.
We value our communities and appreciate your patience and continued support during this period of contemplation and renewal. An announcement regarding our interim Leadership Team Member will be forthcoming. Please forward any questions or concerns to [email protected].
In love and community,
East Point Peace Academy
Board of Directors
