We Encourage You To “Get Involved”!
As a result to organize the July 2011 Spokane Black Agenda Summit it was decided to assemble the Black community and identify the most important issues that effect us today. The Summit empowered the community to voice their concerns collectively in many different workshops.
This newsletter is the result of someone(s) voice expressing the fact that even though we have the greatest ideas or the best intentions; if no one knows about it you cannot be successful. Additionally, we understand that communication is imperative when dealing in our personal or professional lives and by embracing this fundamental value it allows the exchange of innovative ideas, concerns and improvements. The desire is to continuously utilize this newsletter as a tool at our disposal to motivate, inform and update the community on the Black Agenda progress as we move forward.
The standing committees that we will maintain and consistently focus on are: Education, Communication, Social Services, Legal Services, Economic Development (jobs) and Politics. Please stay tuned of any future updates on the committee’s development.
