OUR CHILDREN WILL READ, SO THEY CAN SUCCEED!

READING MASTERY EXPANDS TO 8 RICHMOND SCHOOLS 

Since our 2018 Nehemiah Action Assembly where 840 justice-seekers declared, "We want our children to read, so they can succeed!" our wish is coming true! 

Throughout the summer, the RISC Education Team worked with RPS leaders to press for a pilot of the proven program Reading Mastery as a core curriculum in Fall 2018. With a new Superintendent and Cabinet coming on board, it was a stretch to get the program in place in 2018. 

RISC to Address Housing in 2019!

This fall, RISC leaders held 41 house meetings across our 21 member congregations and heard over 500 stories and concerns.

At the Community Problems Assembly, we listened as three RISC members shared stories of their concerns for family members, friends, and themselves. On October 29, over 200 network members voted on the next issue that RISC will tackle.

Housing won the vote and will be our next big initiative in 2019!
