Hoping to enjoy this wonderful view for another year❤️❤️ 2018/2019 rent is due October 1st; if you, your church, or your business would like to donate towards this years rent let me know! We’re already 1/3 of the way there and every bit helps! #RaiseTheRent#LifeInHaiti
Our Open House has officially started! We will be here until 9, so come on by! The event is free, but donations to help us #RaisetheRent will be happily accepted! (Here is a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of our preparations!)
Don't let people stay up there like they belong. When you no longer have a relationship with them, #letitgo . When you never had a relationship with them and they are just people who are #hateful and rude that try to ruin your day, #forgetit . But, when they have been a part of your life that you cannot let go of or that is not easily dismissed like parental or ex-spouse, then you have to actively participate in the eviction process. #raisetherent and then kick them out. Make it so hard for them to stay. You owe it to yourself to only keep good things in the compartments of your psyche. Your mind is your own. Do you really want to give that person the satisfaction of knowing they are still living rent free in your head? #letgo#evictionnotice#dismissthem#forgetthebadkeepthegood#forgetthebadkeepthegood#forgetthepast
Don’t let negative and toxic people rent space in your head and life. Raise the rent and kick their ass out!
Spend time with those that inspire, support and lift you up. Relationships should help you, not hurt you.
Today and everyday, surround yourself with people that reflect the person you want to be. People who let your light shine. Not those that dull your beautiful soul.
Wings over anchors will always help you soar. 🦅💫
"The MPS private charter Carmen is infringing on MPS students in the Pulaski co-location. They also have selective enrollment, and they are handed MPS buildings at next to nothing cost. While the school board doesn’t have control over the day-to-day operations at these private schools they can and they should ask them to pay their fair share. Some MPS charter schools have current lease rates as low at $1 per square foot. Carmen only currently pays for their North Side location $4.79/square foot and believe me this includes the heat and the maintenance. If MPS insists on authorizing these charter schools than the least they can do is ask them to pay fair market value." #RaiseTheRent - Marva Herndon, Women Committed to an Informed Community
Last night's school board meeting was so hot Resistance Radio NewsTalk NewsTalk 1510 AM Milwaukee/Waukesha host Earl Ingram literally brought a bag of popcorn to eat while enjoying the action.
Our union livestreamed the entire board meeting if you want to pop a bag and watch tonight:

Milwaukee Public Schools is considering a lease extension for one of its private charter schools Carmen at tonight's school board meeting.
Say NO to MPS "Hidden" Raises & Private Charter Lease Extensions
We've been uncovering how private charters like Carmen hurt other MPS schools in a new blog ( http://bit.ly/2qDqii4 ) and series of graphics we've recently released. Our research revealed the board of directors for the private charter have zero hours working in the field of education, or with actual students, but our research also uncovered another troubling revelation. Only one of the nine board members live in the actual city of Milwaukee, where the charter school is located. It's hard to believe outsiders with zero educational experience or background would know how to best educate Milwaukee's children. We want schools and educational leaders that know the field of education and are actually vested in the city in which they work.
#RaiseTheRent on private MPS charters!
"...Recent analysis from the Center for Civil Rights Remedies at UCLA found that, on the whole, charter schools have higher suspension rates than traditional public schools, and that students of color and those with disabilities are suspended at charter schools at higher rates than their peers." Why does the private MPS charter school Carmen have one suspension policy for their North Side school Carmen Northwest and different one for their South Side charter Carmen South? Schools that are directly accountable to a democratically elected school board would have to account for such a disparity in policy.
Just another reason to #RaiseTheRent on MPS private charter schools.

Bless you man, and hope you get your rent!
It’s funny how in life, it’s so easy to let opinions change our direction.
But you know what? I don’t know of one time that God asked our neighbors, or relatives, or friends, if it was ok for Him to direct us to do something.
So why are we asking them instead of following Him?
Your dreams were given to you. 💕
Your purpose was set up for you before you were born.
Not anyone else. And that was His perfect plan.
It’s up to you to keep them, guard them, and grow them. Let him direct you with His words. Not the words of those who whisper doubt.
Once upon a time, years ago, when there was an incoming famine on the land, God gave Joseph the dream that protected an entire country.
He didn’t give it to all of his brothers. But you know what? His brothers did see it later on.
What’s the lesson in this? Joseph never doubted his value or his mission just because someone else didn’t get it. It was given to him. We each have our own mission, our own journey of growth. And that’s A-Okay!! 👌💕 It doesn’t make one better than the other.
It’s our journey. And it’s their journey. So we can choose to love it, embrace it, guard it, grow it, and fight for it.....or we can always chase other people’s dreams, allow them to stomp on ours, or constantly compare our journey to theirs.
It’s just a choice. But that choice does make allllll the difference. You are so valuable. And what you do everyday, it’s important.
Be the best you can be.
Best you. 💕💎
You were created on purpose, for a purpose, for such a time as this. And our lives shouldn’t be run by the opinions of others, but by the mission he has given to us. Go do great things in small ways everyday. It adds up. 💕

Take inventory of who you let in your mind, and the things they say in your presence. I have discovered that if we decide to diligently guard our minds we will have more clarity and creativity to create the life we want. #RaiseTheRent
