NAN WESTERN REGIONAL CONFERENCE

HUGE SUCCESS!!

From February 5-7, the California branch of the National Action Network (NAN) met in Sacramento to hold its inaugural Western Regional Conference of chapters in California, Arizona, and Nevada. The civil rights organization convened the meeting at the Genesis Church in South Sacramento, where the Rev. Tecoy Porter—who also serves as president of the Sacramento chapter of NAN—is the pastor.


The Rev. Al Sharpton founded NAN in 1991. The organization observes the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., promoting a modern civil rights agenda that includes supporting any type of school that is successfully serving Black students.
 
Among the events the conference featured were a student rally at the state Capitol to send lawmakers the message that “Black kids deserve great schools too;” groundbreaking ceremonies for the newest Fortune School campus, Tecoy Porter College Prep, to be built on Dr. Porter’s Genesis Church property in Sacramento; the convening of leaders from California’s top majority Black schools and honoring them at the NAN Gala Banquet; and the “Bridging the African American Achievement Gap” panel discussion. For more information about the conference and NAN Sacramento goto www.nansacramento.org.
 

Fortune School Breaks Ground on New Charter School Campus in Meadowview

School named in honor of Dr. Tecoy Porter, Pastor of the Genesis Church and Chair of CA State National Action Network; School playground dedicated to the memory of Stephon Clark 
 
Fortune School, a system of tuition-free, college-preparatory public charter schools in California, broke ground on a new K-5 charter school in the Meadowview neighborhood of Sacramento. In honor of the milestone, the school held a groundbreaking ceremony today that was attended by Fortune School students and leaders, educators, social justice advocates, and members of Stephon Clark’s family. 

Fortune names its schools after living, local African American community icons. The new charter school is named after Dr. Tecoy Porter,  chair, California State National Action Network (NAN) and the Pastor of Genesis Church, which shares a campus with the new school. 

Located in Meadowview, the new charter school will be located near the site where 22-year-old Stephon Clark, an unarmed African American man, was shot and killed by police. The school’s playground will be dedicated to the memory of Stephon Clark, school leaders announced today. 

California State NAN, led by Dr. Porter, was established in Sacramento in response to the tragedy.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous kick-off for Tecoy Porter College Prep, which will have a positive impact on so many young students in Sacramento and carry on the incredible living legacy of Dr. Tecoy Porter,” said Margaret Fortune, President and CEO of Fortune School. “It is especially meaningful to be joined by so many who are deeply invested in creating a bright future for our children, particularly Stephon Clark’s family, whose memory we will honor forever. Once completed, Tecoy Porter College Prep will be a state-of-the-art campus where students will have access to high-quality learning facilities.”  

The event was part of the NAN Western Regional Conference, an annual convening of Black education and social justice leaders to address issues impacting marginalized communities. 

“I am honored that this new school, which is doing incredibly important work for our youth, will carry my name,” said Dr. Tecoy Porter. “I am thankful to Margaret Fortune and the entire team who made today possible. I can’t wait to see Tecoy Porter College Prep students flourish on a beautiful new school campus, where they are free to reach their highest potential.”
