Einstein Schools to Hold Walk for Equity on June 18

Date: June 16th, 2020

Einstein Schools to Hold Walk for Equity on June 18Community promoting changing Six Flags site to bike, walking and running trails and arboretum

What:       Einstein Schools teachers and staff will hold a “Walk for Equity” to raise awareness for equity and the petition to transform the dilapidated Six Flags land to bike, walking and running trails and arboretum.  To access the petition go here: https://www.change.org/TransformOldNewOrleansSixFlagsNow
When:    Thursday, June 18 at 10:30 am
Where:
    Sarah T. Reed High School, 5316 Michoud Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70129

Why:        In New Orleans East, where the residents are primarily African American, Vietnamese, or Latino/a, the old Six Flags remains an eye-sore and affront to equity in New Orleans. Changing this site to an arboretum with bike, walking and running trails serves as a tangible sign that New Orleans values equity. Instead of demolishing the old rides, they can be fenced-in and transformed to an open-air STEAM museum or the space can be transformed into a space that provides youth employment and stimulates the economy in New Orleans East. 

**Media are invited to attend.  This event is not open to the public**
