6:00 to 8:30 PM
Thurgood Marshall Public Charter School
2427 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, SE
Tanya Kinlow, William Lockridge, Oralia Puente, Jeffrey Richardson, Nathan Sanders, Carl Thomas, Kathy Pearson West, and a representative from the Chancellor’s Office.
Nathan Sanders is the 2nd in command of the Washington Teacher's Union. Tanya Kinlow a former school board member is now an ombudsman for the schools and William Lockride, a school board member. I'm not thrilled that this is being held at a Charter School, but it is metro accessible (across from the Anacostia Metro Station), so I won't be kicking myself in the head over it.
