Good Afternoon NPU Chairs!
I want to introduce Krystal Lunsford to you all! She is the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office Citizens CourtWatch Director. You might remember me mentioning CourtWatch in the NPU meetings and/or heard of it before, but this unit is a great way to keep you all informed about what’s going in court. See the link below for more info on Krystal.
But, I need your help in getting all the proper contacts to her. I have passed on the email addresses of you all and the neighborhood presidents, but could all you provide the most recent contacts as well? Sometimes the internet is not the most up to date so any neighborhood presidents, public safety chairs, or anyone that is interested in hearing about Zone 3 cases – please pass on their information!
Thank you all!
Join the Annie E. Casey Foundation and peers from the public, private and philanthropic sectors for an event to explore promising policies and approaches that are helping to change the odds for African-American families in Atlanta.
When: Thursday, June 6, 2019 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Where: Atlanta Metropolitan State College Easley Pavilion & Conference Center
Drawing on findings and recommendations from a new Casey Foundation report, we will examine the systemic and structural barriers that are preventing Atlantans of color, especially those living along and south of Interstate 20, from accessing the opportunities necessary to thrive ― and the strategies that several forward-thinking organizations are implementing to establish more equitable pathways to education, housing, income and careers.
By working together, we hope to bring these types of solutions to a larger scale and, ultimately, ensure every Atlantan can access the opportunities necessary for them to fully contribute to, and benefit from, our city’s growing economy.
We hope to see you there!

It is also used as a way for citizens to receive information concerning all functions of city government. NPU-V encompasses the communities of Mechanicsville, Summerhill, Peoplestown, Pittsburgh, Adair Park, and Capitol Gateway.
