There is a myriad of issues impacting the status of African Americans around the state. And,
although many of the discussions will center around African American topics specifically, the developed solutions and outcomes will impact every ethnicity and community.
Your collective input and activities is needed and desired moving the agenda forward.
Lastly, there will be a Gala on Saturday night honoring African American elected officials from Stockton to Bakersfield. As of today, 29 African American elected officials have been contacted for participation. The Gala is been crafted to communal support for their hard work and efforts on behalf of their constituents.
At the time of Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination, his work pivoted to be inclusive of all people. Working for poor people, the marginalized and under-served, he developed what he referred to as the “Beloved Community.” It way past time for US to form our own “BELOVED COMMUNITIES” throughout this state we call home.
As the Chairman of the local BAPAC Chapter, I extend this invitation and hope to see each of you on May 5th-6th.
